Check out more of our drone shots here: https://bit.ly/2SO2Zw3 Come explore Fontainebleau township, Fontainebleau Castle and Forest with me on a day trip away from Paris! Short but oh-so sweet! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 📷See more of my daily life on Instagram: _notevenfrench 🐸JOIN THE FRANCOPHILES on Patreon: https://bit.ly/2HAC3uG 💎SHOP NOW at Francophile Designs: https://rdbl.co/2qxn6Ce ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- How do you get there? If you want to get to Fontainebleau from Paris by public transport, take a Transilien train from Gare de Lyon heading towards Migennes, Montargis or Montereau. You want to get off at Fontainebleau-Avon (normally the first, second or third stop), and the journey should take around 40 minutes. Trains run between every 20 and 90 minutes and the ticket costs 8.85€ each way, unless you have a Navigo or five-zone Paris Visite card. Once at the station, you can head directly into the forest or take Bus 1 in the direction of Les Lilas to the Château de Fontainebleau, which will take about 15 minutes. You can also walk the three kilometers into the town in under 40 minutes. Fresh air fills your lungs on arriving in the classy town of Fontainebleau. It’s enveloped by the 280 sq km Forêt de Fontainebleau, which is as big a playground today as it was in the 16th century, with superb walking and rock-climbing opportunities. Situated 68km southeast of Paris, the town grew up around its magnificent château, one of the most beautifully decorated and furnished in France. What is there to see? The Château de Fontainebleau is, of course, at the top of most people’s list of things to see in this town 55 km southeast of Paris. Its 1,500 rooms, including Marie Antoinette’s Turkish boudoir and Napoleon III’s lavish theater, have been preserved or immaculately restored in recent years. Set within 130 acres of formal gardens and parkland, this UNESCO World Heritage Site lives up to and exceeds expectations. It is a monument depicting the whole of French culture in (relative) miniature. The palace and the town are surrounded by the Forêt de Fontainebleau. The 25,000 hectares of woodland contain 1,600 km of walking trails, great spots for bouldering, hiking and horse riding, and amazing biodiversity, including its own endemic tree species. If it’s your kind of thing, you can also visit the grave of Katherine Mansfield — the prominent modernist short story writer from New Zealand — in the local cemetery. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- VIDEO NOTES ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FREE STUFF AirBnB travel credit (25€ or equivalent): http://bit.ly/2yTkCAH LIFE IN FRANCE BOOKS * Best French Grammar book that I've found: http://amzn.to/2g511py * Best on French parenting, Bringing up bébé: http://amzn.to/2xORnz1 * Best on multicultural workplaces: http://amzn.to/2fEU9hQ * Favourite fiction read, Almost French: http://amzn.to/2xOdbKZ MY CAMERA: https://amzn.to/2H0m3oF MY DRONE: https://amzn.to/2rhIzP6 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ You can join me, Rosie, for even more adventures on Not Even French!

Plein de souvenir Je me souvient que lorsque j'étais petit j'allais souvent passer après-midi a Fontainebleau a grimper sur les rochers et a jouer a cache cache dans la forêt

if you only had 4 days in paris and had to choose between versailles or fontainebleau, which would you go for? is there a guided tour at the fontainebleau and is it any good?
Mega (3 months ago)
French here. I grew up very close from Fontainebleau, I love it but I have to say that Versailles is a must see. Its huge, magnificient and it represents French Art at its peak. Fontainebleau is way cosier. It's smaller, and farther away from Paris. It is enclosed by a huge forest, very famous (big rocks for climbers and an amazing thin sand that was used to craft the Louvre's glass pyramid). I think its great if you want to chill in the greater parisian region for 1 or 2 days. Of course you got tours and viqits organized. Plus you have Vaux-le-Vicomte a few minutes drive away (a beautiful castle that was a kind of prototype for Versailles) and Chantilly in the same area. Either way you can't go wrong with either of theses 3 castles. But if you have to pick one go for Versailles, it's the craziest one (go there early before the crowd or at night if you want to enjoy a firework/fountain show)

Haha I currently live here for an internship! The "lunch break" part is literally my morning commute. Thanks for bringing new tourists to us 😜 A good tip for potential tourists: If going through boutiques at noon isn't your thing (especially with the scathing heat we're experiencing right now), take bus line 208 at Cour des Adieux (right in front of the Château entrance), get off at Division Leclerc in Moret-sur-Loing, cross the bridge and turn left at the second crossing, stop at "Mille et Une Glaces". Best ice cream in the area. Then go back to the bridge and find a spot near the river to sunbathe, admire the view that inspired the best impressionists, or even jump in the water and go for a swim. I spend nearly all my lunch breaks there. It's almost like I'm on vacation every day 😉
Franck Michaux (4 months ago)
Wow, you visited my neck of the woods! For anyone who's visiting Fontainebleau and have a little extra time to spend I would recommend visiting Moret sur Loing which is just a mere 10 kilometers away. It's a lovely medieval village and impressionist painters like Alfred Sisley loved it. It's the next station on the same train line used to visit Fontainebleau, so that's an option. Also the forest all around Fontainebleau is visited daily by dozens of rock climbers from across Europe. Tons and tons of hiking trails in a gorgeous landscape.

Toujours émerveillée par le patrimoine culturelle Français ? ^^ D'ailleurs c'est vrai que ca doit faire bizarre lorsque l'on vient d'un pays si récent .
Reinventing50s (4 months ago)
You forgot to explain that Fontainebleau castle was built from François I (Renaissance) to Napoléon I (First Empire). It was the favourite castle of the emperor and his memory is everywhere there. It is said to be the second most beautiful castle in France after Versailles. The forest is absolutly stunning because of its rocks, sand and remarquable trees. Everything reminds you it was a see a long, long time ago.

Reinventing50s Napoléon loved this place so much that he even called the castle "la vraie demeure des Rois" (the true home of the Kings)

Oh this is making me so home sick ! J'ai grandi à côté de Fontainebleau (à Bois-le Roi, l'arrêt juste avant Fontainebleau-Avon, sur la même ligne de train). J'ai été au lycée à Avon et on passait tous nos mercredis après-midis dans le parc du château... Plus petite, mon père m'a appris à grimper sur les rochers de la forêt de Fontainebleau. Maintenant ça fait plus de 10 ans que j'habite à Sydney en Australie ! And we're somehow going to move to NZ sometime in the future... Fun fact: you do 4 'bises' there whereas 60km away, in Paris, it's only 2 ! That never made me arrive on time at a party but, boy, I hated it ! Love your videos btw ;)
Ouchchen Ouchchen (3 months ago)
Bah histoire de brouiller un peu tout ça, j'ai 45 ans, ai grandi à Paris, et me souviens très bien que l'on faisait 4 bises aux demoiselles… Mais effectivement, tout le monde dit que c'est deux à Paris !

Nari P J'ai 21 ans, alors oui ça s'explique. Il semblerait que ma génération ait décidée je la jouer à la parisienne ! C'est intéressant d'apprendre ça en tout cas, je m'en vais mener une enquête sur cette affaire 8)

Ah ah, je viens de fêter mes 40 ans et ai quitté la région il y a 20 ans... ceci pourrait expliquer cela... peut-être ?
Ilona Filip (4 months ago)
J'ai aussi grandi à Fontainebleau, vécu à Avon et passé un paquet de temps à Bois-le-roi, mais jamais je n'ai vu qui que se soit se faire 4 bises dans la région! Tu m'intrigues.. Vivons-nous dans un univers parallèle ? :')

Hello ! Rosie you were right next to where I live! My wife works every day in Paris (35 min by train) and I work a lot in home office (once a week at the office in Paris). It's a choice we made. This allows us to live better in harmony with nature, in a house on a large lot (impossible in Paris). Very nice video ! A+ Edouard

Thanks for this lovely and informative video. Everyone always takes day trips to Versailles. I didn’t realize Fontainebleau was also accessible.

Honestly I had never really given it a second thought - surely Versailles was the best! And it's just as gorgeous, just in a different way!

Merci pour ta réponse ça me fait plaisir ☺ Mon préféré c'est Villandry avec ses parterres magnifiques et romantiques, et son architecture discrète ! Tout est dans le détail. Il y a aussi le Château Royal d'Amboise (gardien de la Loire) et bien sur Chenonceau.
