Hotel Malesherbes

Our hotel near Fontainebleau,

from its forest to its varied, rocky landscapes...

Hotel Malesherbes

Famous for its forest and palace, Fontainebleau owes its rise to the attractions it presented to French royalty. Louis VII set up a hunt in the area in the 12th century, Saint-Louis had a hospital built there in the 13th century, and Philippe le Bel was born there in 1268 and died there in 1314. But it was only under François I, with the construction of the château, that Fontainebleau ceased being a hamlet and truly started to grow. It would later become an imperial city under Napoleon who moved into the château and renovated it.

Strolling through the old city centre, admire the many reminders of past glories. Discover the old Hôtel Guise, Saint-Louis church, Hôtel de Pompadour, the Napoleonic Museum of Art and Military History... Also make sure you set aside some time to visit the equestrian centres that made Fontainebleau the capital of horse riding: the military equestrian centre and the Grand Parquet, right by the hotel. Fontainebleau also offers amateurs of bouldering a magnificent training ground, with many rocky formations dotted around the forest.

The Palace of Fontainebleau

A family home to the Kings of France

The grandiose Palace of Fontainebleau is sure to impress not only with its monumental dimensions, but also the wealth and variety of its decorations. At the heart of 130 hectares of park and gardens, the building itself counts 1,500 rooms and no fewer than 40,000 pieces of furniture. During your stay, make sure you don’t miss: the Fer-à-cheval, the main apartments, the ballroom, Trinity chapel... and then the magnificent gardens.

Fontainebleau Beach

An invitation to take it easy and relax

Every summer, in July, Fontainebleau gets its own beach, and invites visitors to come and enjoy it! At the Grand Parquet, opposite the obstacle course, the beach provides deck chairs and parasols, but also football pitches, volleyball, badminton and boules courts. There is also a busy programme of events: picnics, salsa and zumba initiation workshops, dance nights, and a laser quest for fun for the whole family.
