We had a great time in the cottage. It is within cycling distance from some of the best boudering areas.
The owners are friendly and helpful. We even got some fresh eggs by arrival.
We just returned from our second trip staying here for 3 weeks, and it was just as wonderful as the first time! The location is quiet, with lots of space for kids to play outside (grass, woods, a long driveway -- and it's all fenced in!), plus easy access to the Fontainebleau forest -- hiking trails just across the street, and so much climbing plus more hiking a short drive away.
Milly-la-Foret is a 3-minute drive from the cottage. It's a perfect small town to be near -- small and picturesque, while practical. We regularly bought bread, pastries, roast chickens, fruits, and vegetables in town. There is also a small Carrefour Market grocery store just outside of town for other supplies.
Christine maintains the cottage very well! It's neat, clean, and easy to live in for a few weeks. We cooked almost all our meals there, and enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings, playing badminton, and letting the kids run around. The kids especially enjoyed feeding the chickens our food scraps.
Christine is kind, professional, and easy to work with as a host. She has lots of information available for nearby attractions and information on hiking, and was responsive to any questions. She also rents out a crash pad for climbing, which was convenient!
We loved our visit and hope to return again!
second visit to this home away from home, the perfect location in the heart of fountainbleau forest and more climbing than I could ever do in one lifetime! Superb!
I have been going to Fontainebleau for many years. This is the best place I've found. Perfect in every way. Quiet and cosy. So nice I wanted to keep it a secret, but I thought I should leave a review.
A nice cottage, clean and well equipped in a great location for climbing. My children enjoyed feeding the hens and playing in the outdoor areas. We had a brilliant holiday here and would certainly go back.
