“Fantastic Gite close to bouldering areas and amenities”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed here for a week in march for a week of bouldering, we found the gite to be in a good location for both the boulders (some bouldering areas can be walked to) and also shops and local towns (about a 10 min drive). The gite itself was clean, tidy and in fantastic condition. I would definitely recommend this gite to anyone wishing to experience the fontainebleau forest.

“Excellent gite owned by super friendly locals”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at this gite for one week in December. The gite is modern and has a very nice shower with three streams. 5 minute walk from the gite is a little shop. Nearby is a bar and a pharmacy.
20 minutes walk to three main Boulder areas called rocher guidot, rocher du potala and JA Martin. The gite is equiped with maps of all important areas and guides for bouldering.

The owners are super friendly and invited us for dinner to try their homemade foie gras and a bottle of Champagne. We will stay their again.

“Well equipped, kid friendly guesthouse. Great week in the forest”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This was my first experience in a gite in the Forest of Fontainebleau - came for a week of bouldering with some friends and had a great time. Antoine who runs the guesthouse is a very nice guy, extremely accommodating, and speaks good English. Internet, electricity, and laundry things were all provided. But make sure you have a phone so you can arrange pick up on the way to the gite.

This was the only gite that would allow bookings that weren't sat-sat. This proved to be extremely important to us as we couldn't change our travel dates. Also I don't really understand the french holiday lease system. Involved lots of back and forth and signing of leases...

The gite itself is small and comfortable, has been recently renovated and extremely well set up. Complete range of cutlery and cooking implements. Suitable for kids (they had potties and other necessities for the tiny ones), board games, internet, BBQ. The shower is awesome and has multiple jets that can clean you from many different angles.

Upstairs was a single loft room, which is separated into sleeping areas by blackout curtains. It was lovely and dark, with though be prepared to get earplugs if your travel buddies snore.

We were unable to work the heating properly and had cold showers in the evening. This is most likely because we (four smelly adults) were all taking long showers and couldn't figure out how to change the timing on the hot french water system. I'm sure if we'd have asked Antoine he'd have sorted it out for us.

All in all the gite was fantastic. Next time I think I'll bring my wife and child along too.
