Our 4 gites are located at the south of the Seine-et-Marne, to 80 km of Paris, 20 km of Fontainebleau and 5 km of the exit of the motorway A6 (easy access). On the border of Fontainebleau forest, the gites were arranged in a large farm of the 18th century. They are distributed in the various bodies of building.

    We liked our stay very much. Your cottage is a nice and quiet place. The sanitary wave is very comfortable. And there is a lot of space in the house. And the distance between sleeping rooms and living room sis nice. Sincerely.

  • Nick, Manchester, August, 2019

    A beautifulplace to stay some weeks in the summer. In the surrandings there is musées to see and visit. The cottage is a nice place to rest and prepare for the next day. During the not days it stened cool and confortable.

  • Callum, Vlissingen, Juny 2019

    It is always difficult to find three "gites" together. So.... it was perfect for us to be here !

  • Malcom, Belfast, August 2018

    Thank you once again for a wonderful gite to stay in. The property is very clean and was everything we needed to enjoy your holiday.
    You have made us feel very welcome. See you again next year !

  • Ramona; Eindhoven, March 2022

    The snow was not to bad and we had a very speedy return.

    We really enjoyed our stay and we thank you for the opportunity to rent your gite.
    What we really liked was the space and the privacy the house had to offer. It was also very clean and we loved to have 2 showers and toilets...
    The fireplace was a real treat as the weather was not so good.. :-) 
    I don't really have negative points because it was perfect for us.
    Thanks for having us.
  • Christian, Allemagne, May 2018

    We had a very pleasant week-long stay at the 7 person Gîte of "Haras de la Fontaine".
    Both during the booking process and our time here, the landlords have been very nice and helpful.
    Also, communicating in English is no problem.
    The apartment was well-equiped and contained all items and features listed on the website. It might not be top modern in style and decoration, but it is very clean, spacious, and homely.
    If ever we come back to the area of Nemours for another bouldering holiday, we will definitely consider staying here again.

  • Max, Freiburg, October 2018

    It's the second time and we still love it !
    Best wishes.

  • James, Newport, April 2019

    It was a fine home, we enjoy it !

    We spent a wonderful three weeks at Catherine and Gilbert's Gîte. We traveled with our nine month old daughter and three year old son. Not far from Gîte there are good opportunities for bouldering from 6-10 minutes by car. There are fewer people than in popular areas like Bas Cuvier or Le Cul de Chien. It takes about 30-40 minutes to get to popular areas. Catherine and Gilbert received us very well in their Gîte. On the day of arrival, we could only be at 12 at night. They were so accommodating that we could arrive two days early and leave a day later than the agreed time. Gîte itself is located in the countryside in an old French house with high ceilings, its own courtyard. Catherine and Gilbert provided us with a travel crib and mattress for the kids. They have a double bed in the bedroom and another bed in the dining room. They gave us a table and chairs for the terrace, a parasol and everything for the barbecue. They have swings for children in the yard. Our kids enjoyed riding them. The yard is safe for children and they can be allowed to play alone. Our son could ride his bike around the yard. Catherine and Gilbert even let our son use their granddaughter's electric car. The house has everything you need for a holiday with children. Kitchen, all necessary utensils, refrigerator, microwave oven, stove without oven, bath, washing machine. For crawling children, I recommend taking some kind of rug with you, as the floor is tiled and a food mixer for newborns. We also took bed linen with us. On our visit, we almost did not use the batteries, as it was warm. Payment for heat is by the way negotiated in advance in the contract, which must be signed before arrival.
    This Gîte is the perfect place to spend your holidays and enjoy the atmosphere of rural France. There is a very beautiful area around. Catherine and Gilbert are very hospitable hosts and it is a pleasure to deal with them. We highly recommend their Gîte. Thanks to them for a nice time in France!

  • Chantal, Russen, August 2019

    We really enjoyed our stay in your cottage. We liked the big and fencen off garden, which was very pleasant for the children and our dog. Also the amount of garden furniture was good. W sleep very well thanks to the nice beds. We had a good holiday and thank you for your hospitality.

  • Sofie, Leusden, Avril 2022

    We had a lovely stay at Haras de la Fontaine, with our 4 young kids. We stayed in the 7 persons gite.
    Gilbert gave us a friendly welcome and helped us settle with babybed and crashpads. He speaks english so much better than we speak french so that helped a lot!
    The kitchen is well equiped and there's a large table for family diners and games.

    We had a great week, the children loved the big bathtub, the horses and spotting lizzards sunbathing on the stones.

    We mostly went climbing during the day, the nearest place being a 7 minute drive and the furthers 35 minutes.

  • Yin, London, October 2018

    It is a nice and spacious gite

  • Davio, Ljubljana, October 2018

    Spacious apartment. Surroundings. Appliances (dishwasher, washing machine,...).
    Fireplace and the sofas in front. Cosy.

  • Paul and Bertha, Pays-Bas, Avril 2022

    We enjoyed this beautiful French authentic gite. The peace and space with the fine private garden was great for us and our dog.
    The Gite contains everything you need.
    Thanks for the wonderful week.
    We have completely come to rest.
    This place deserves the best recommendation.
