Castle and Gardens of Fontainbleau near Paris

 When my friend Leontien left, I had a couple of days to myself to relax a bit. The second week came Wim to the camping and we had a lovely sunny week exploring the neighbourhood, Fontainbleau, Meaux, Paris and shopping in Val L´Europe near Eurodisney. And ofcourse also relaxing by the pool on the camping.

I always wanted to see the beautiful Castle and Gardens of Fontainbleau near Paris. So we decided to explore it one day. The Palace of Fontainbleau, located 55 kilometres from the centre of Paris, is one of the largest French royal châteaux. The palace as it is today is the work of many French monarchs, building on an early 16th century structure of Francis I. The building is arranged around a series of courtyards. The city of Fontainbleau has grown up around the remainder of the Forest of Fontainbleau, a former royal hunting park. The main façade, punctuated by high-roofed pavilions, dates in part back to the 16th century. It was here, at the foot of the famous double horse-shoe staircase built in 1634 by Jean Androuet Du Cerceau, that Napoleon made his celebrated farewell to his guard before leaving for the Island of Elba.

It´s really worth a visit!!! Don´t hesitate if you´re in the neighbourhood and you love this kind of things!

Ja, we hebben echt genoten deze dag! Het lijkt erg op "Versailles" maar dan kleiner.
