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.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
