Located a short distance south of Paris, Fontainebleau has been a popular place to escape the big city chaos for hundreds of years. Chosen as the residence for the Kings of France, as well as Napoleon Bonaparte, Fontainebleau today is not exclusive to the elite and wealthy as it once was, and one can almost feel as if they have travelled back in time when they visit.
You can collect your car hire in Paris and drive down to Fontainebleau as a day trip, or perhaps do things the other way round and spend your nights in this peaceful country setting and make trips into the big city. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Fontainebleau is both easy and economical.
Apart from the scenery, the main attraction for tourists in the area is the Chateau of Fontainebleau, a magnificent palace which was actually the first Renaissance building built outside of Italy. Beginning life in the 12th century, the chateau was added to and modified by its many residents over the years until it finally took the shape it has today. Drive your hire car a short distance from the town centre to visit the chateau, and explore the famous gardens, luxurious living areas, and the many galleries, art collections and courtyards.
Surrounding the town is the famous Fontainebleau Forest, a large area of woodland which was once a favourite hunting ground for nobles and royalty. Driving your rental car through the forest will be a pleasant experience compared to the highways of Paris, and there are many great places to stop for some sightseeing or even a picnic.
