Chalet Paradis, Great Gite in Fontainebleau close to the Best Climbing Sites

Welcome to "Chalet Paradis".
Located in the pretty village of Arbonne la foret, it is heaven for climbers and nature lovers.
The famous rock climbing sites ("Canche aux Merciers", "Cuisinière", "Franchard", "Apremont", "Cul du Chien"...) of the Fontainebleau forest are right there, only a few minutes away from our gite.
You will love our chalet, built in the pure alpine tradition, amidst nature and surrounded by a beautiful garden.
It offers 3 bedrooms decorated with taste, in a clear wood style. On the ground floor, a first room with a double bed (140 cms) and a second room with 2 single bunk beds (90 cms each). A bathroom (bath, shower, toilet) is available next to these 2 bedrooms.
On the first floor, a third room with a large bed (160 cms) and a sofa bed. A second bathroom (bath, shower, toilet) is located next to the living room.
The fully equipped kitchen (crockery, cutlery, dishes, dishwasher, fridge & freezer, gas cooker, oven & microwave.) opens up to the alpine-style cosy living room. It is divided into a dining and a lounge areas, with sofas and a television.
Chalet Paradis offers you also great outdoor equipment. A beautiful wooden pergola overlooks our garden and the surrounding countryside. Equipped with table and chairs, it is a great spot for eating sheltered from sun... or rain. At garden level, another stone terrace, with evening lighting, awaits you for a sunny lunch or a well-deserved rest in a deckchair. Children will also love our swing and garden toys.
Only 1 hour away from Paris, ideally nestled in the heart of the Fontainebleau and 3 pignons forests, "Chalet Paradis" is located 10 kilometers away from the royal town of Fontainebleau and 5 kilometers from the famous painters village of Barbizon. For cycling or hiking on well marked trails, exceptional bouldering time on the famous Fontainebleau rocks, you have only to cross the street!
But that's not all. After a few minute drive, you have the choice between admiring and visiting the wonderful royal castle of Fontainebleau (house of most the greatest French Kings), stroll in pretty Barbizon visiting painting galleries of Barbizon, or simply immerge yourself in a well preserved nature, rich of flora and fauna.
Not to forget Paris, Disneyland and Versailles, that are excellent destinations for one-day trips, by car or by train.
Practical information for your stay:
- You will have to come by car (no public transportation in the village)
- Closest train station: "Fontainebleau Avon" only 10 minutes away by car (possibility to park at the station). Direct and regular trains to central Paris (Paris "Gare de Lyon" station) in 40 minutes.
- Possibility to park up to 2 cars in the garden
- Easy access from the A6 motorway (Paris - Lyon axis). Arbonne la foret is located in the South East of Paris.
- A small grocery store in available in the village (5 minutes by foot)

Perfectly located for our trip to Fontainebleau, situated near all the main climbing areas and two minutes walk from Pizzeria Croq Foret which hires out pads as well as making delicious pizza! Comfy beds, hot showers and a well equipped kitchen plus no hassle booking or when checking in/out. Highly recommended!

fantastic house, everything you could want. The bedroom upstairs was too low to stand up in but I'm 6ft! Very helpful owners.

Spacious rooms and a well equipped kitchen, the chalet is well placed for the climbing areas in the trois pignons. Very helpful owners and simple check in/out made this a stress free and enjoyable stay.

location of house was excellent to go bouldering. we were 2 families, one family with two kids, one family without kids. the house has a nice kitchen and big living room with wlan and tv. it felt like every family had enough space on its own as well - like a flat in a house. kids enjoyed the garden, while parents enjoyed the nice terrace and barbeque. pizza next to the house was delicious and we enjoyed the market and pubs in Milly as well. We will come again :-)

Much more than a holiday rental this was a home from home with everything you could ever need. We enjoyed every meal alfresco either on the patio or the large elevated veranda overlooking the garden. A regular visitor was a red squirrel who climbed the trees at the bottom of the garden and the evening bird song was delightful. We loved walking through the lovely village to the local bakery each morning for fresh bread and to the pizzeria in the evenings for ice cream, after a fab day of bouldering in the forest. Our hosts Pacale and Frederic made everything from the booking, travel arrangements and arrival easy. A very attentive and thoughtful couple. Thank you we will be definitely returning.

We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children and have just returned from the chalet in Arbonne-la-foret which is less than 10 mins from Fontainebleau. We were met by Pascale the owner who was very friendly and helpful. The chalet was well equipped and even had lots of toys for children. The garden was great for relaxing and having BBQs. The chalet is next to a local French restaurant and near a the local pizza shop where you can hire bouldering mats etc. There are plenty of bouldering areas nearby and you can access the forest tracks from across the road. Easy commute into Paris for the day (40 min by train) and pretty areas to visit nearby (e.g. Barbizon village).

We stayed in this chalet for a week of bouldering in Font and it was a great location for this. The hosts were lovely and the chalet has everything you could want. The outside space is brilliant, with a bbq area in the garden, and a covered balcony area upstairs which we used every day. The only 2 quirks are that you need to duck to use the attic bedroom and the bunkbed room is off the downstairs bedroom, but this was not a problem for us. Would definitely stay again!

The gite in Arbonne owned by pascsle and Frederic is superb. As we arrived we received a very warm welcome and were delighted to find very clean, comfortable and well equipped accommodation. The kitchen has everything, including a dish washer. The gite also has a washing machine and tumble dryer making life very easy. There were plenty of towels and the 2 bathrooms supplied plenty of hot water. Wifi access was great. The gite is situated in a beautiful spot, as well as having a lovely private garden it is only a walk away from the forest where you can run forever or a very short drive from the best bouldering in Fontainbleau, where you can climb until your heart is content .

Very comfortable, well equipped accommodation in perfect location for exploring the region. Tranquil rear garden/deck perfect for the sitting out in the evening. Extremely friendly and accommodating hosts. Note, head room in upstairs bedroom is limited if you are tall, and its a bedroom off a bedroom on the lower floors - Not a problem, just not necessarily clear from the listing. A very pleasant base for our week and a bit; would have no hesitation is staying there again.

We spent 2 weeks at Pascale & Frederic's lovely cottage. The house was spotless and comfortable with all the comforts of home also very well equipped. The main floor covered deck was used every day for meals, board games, snoozing and reading. We walked to numerous hiking trails every day and enjoyed the bouldering areas several days also. It was just a 15 minute drive to explore Fontainebleau where we also boarded the train into Paris. We discovered and explored several small villages either close by or within an hours drive. The cottage is in a small village where we loved the peace and quiet. It was great having 2 bathrooms, both with good water pressure. The beds were really comfortable (good mattresses)! Even on really hot days, there is a good cross breeze if you open up all the windows. The steps between the lower level and main floor and the steps between the main floor and upper level bedroom are really steep but we adjusted quickly.There is a cool pizza shop a short walk away with lovely owners, a cute black lab and great pizza! Finally, the owners were lovely and accommodating & just a phone call away with any questions. When we left, it felt we were leaving good friends behind (also 2 great children!!!)

Frederic and Pascale are perfect hosts and speak excellent English, which made the whole rental process very smooth. It is also reassuring to know that they are only a phone call away if needed. The location enables you to walk into the forest from right across the street. There is also a great restaurant, Le Petit Corne Biche, just a few doors away (separate review). The accommodation is thoughtfully and thoroughly furnished and equipped to a high standard. A bonus is the covered sitting and eating area, ideal for sheltering from the sun or the odd shower. We really enjoyed our stay here,

Lovely house in generous gardens and well equipped with plenty of toys for toddlers. The owners kindly sourced an extra high chair and cot (we have twins) at no extra cost. Good restaurant next door and pizza place next door again. Top room has low ceilings. Would definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful time in Arbonne-la-Forêt with our three kids. The owners are nice, the chalet is cosy and clean. The kids loved the garden an the porch is a great spot for dining and chilling. We had only four days, but you can spent much more time here with Paris only an hour away and beautiful Forest of Fontainebleau next door. Climbing at Trois Pignons was great fun, and there are so many more spots to explore! We would love to come back! Merci beaucoup!

The cabin had everything we needed and was very charming. Beautiful setting. Pascale welcomed us warmly and gave lots of advice. There is a folder full of local information which proved very useful. Would highly recommend a stay here.

It was the second stay in this house at Pascal and Frederic for us and what can I say, it was all great again. The house is ideally located to the most boulder spots, the decor and size of the house, even for 6 people, is very good. Pascale and Fredric are very friendly and uncomplicated. We will surely come back again. Thank you both for such a nice Holiday. See you next time, hopefully.

Nous avions réservé ce chalet pour une semaine. Nous avons eu un très bon accueil par la propriétaire, très sympathique et un très bon accueil téléphonique également. Nous étions 6 adultes et avons tous apprécié le confort du chalet, dans un endroit calme, et tt est prévu pour passer un bon séjour. De plus, pour les personnes qui randonnent, il y a de magnifiques randonnées à faire dans la forêt de Fontainebleau. N'hésitez pas à réserver ce chalet. Vous ne serez pas déçus.

The chateau was exactly as described perfect for a family holiday there was everything you needed to keep the children entertained from ball games to swings to board games provided Only 1 hour on the train to Paris and driving distance to Disney Unfortunately the restaurant next door was closed for summer holidays but the local pizzeria 2 doors down from the chateau was excellent home made on the spot.. Many enjoyable hours sat on the balcony with a glass of wine. Exceptionally good value for money in a lovely part of France Thank you very much we will visit again

The house is lovely. Quirky and full of character and feels like a real home from home. My two little boys were in heaven as there are lots and lots of toys for them to play with. Even better when it means mum and dad get to enjoy a cold beer on the lovely verandah after a day on the rocks whilst the kids play happily in the garden below. The forest of Fontainbleu/Trois Pignons is a wonderful playground for big and little kids alike, and Chalet Pardis is the perfect base to enjoy it.

Me, my husband & our 2 children (3 year old and 6 month old) have just returned home after a wonderful stay at Chalet Paradis. The location is perfect - very central to all the main climbing areas but we also managed to go to Paris & Disneyland from here. There is a pizza shop a couple of doors down but also there is a takeaway pizza van that stops near the centre of Arbonne-la-Forêt on a Thursday evening which was recommended to us by one of the locals & they do amazing pizzas! The chalet itself is spacious, very clean & extremely well equipped. There was also lots of toys for the children to play with which kept them occupied. We also liked the enclosed garden as we could relax whilst our 3 year old ran around. Pascale & Frédéric were fantastic hosts. We hope to visit again soon!

This gite was our base whilst bouldering around the various sites around Font. The owners are very friendly and helpful and speak very good English . The gite is lovely, just as described, it's clean and very quiet at night. If you have really young kids the internal stairs may be a little steep but this aside I would highly recommend.

Nous avons de nouveau réservé le chalet pour une semaine cette année. Comme l'année précédente, rien à dire sinon que tt est prévu pour que le séjour se passe très bien. Le chalet est très bien équipé, il ne manque rien, ils ont pensé à tout. Pour les randonneurs, la forêt de Fontainebleau est à côté et on peut y faire des randos superbes. Si vous venez à Arbonne la Forêt, n'hésitez pas à louer le chalet, vous ne le regretterez pas.
