Although Fontainebleau is located in the metropolitan area of Paris, car hire in Fontainebleau makes a trip into Paris easy. Hiring a car in Fontainebleau will make the 7km journey into Paris take just under an hour. The main attraction of a holiday in Fontainebleau is certainly the castle, but there is also Fontainebleau forest in the vicinity as well. The forest is a weekend getaway for countless Parisians, and is popular for tourists more broadly too, with - 11 million visitors to the forest per year. This former royal hunting park is also popular for climbers and bolderers, and conserves many species of flora and fauna.
Hiring a car in Fontainebleau enables you to explore to your heart's content - but if you intend to stay in Fontainebleau, the chateau is completely unmissable. This grand palace was a favourite of Napoleon, and is one of the largest French royal chateaux. If you rent a car in Fontainebleau you won't need it for the chateau visit, as- the castle is centrally located. However it will be very useful to visit surrounding areas. With an excellent selection of historical artefacts, and a setting which is a historical artefact in itself, Fontainebleau chateau is well worth your visit, and is slightly less over-crowded than the more well-known French chateaux. The gardens are also great for an afternoon's meander.
