  • The Fontainebleau Forest is so big that you wouldn't have been able to see it all for 10 days. The forest was quiet and quiet. It is recommended to leave the complex Paris and explore the tranquil Fontainebleau forest and castle.

  • Beautiful place, with a pleasant walk, with closed woods. There is signalling and very close to the castle of the same name. It's worth it for those who like nature. There is a gazebo overlooking Paris. Very interesting.
