Delve into the extravagant world of the French monarchy at one of the country’s most famed royal residences, Château de Fontainebleau. Set amidst sprawling parkland, this imperial château features magnificent examples of art and architecture through the centuries. Mediaeval marvels combine with Renaissance masterpieces in this stately abode, also home to stunning art galleries and opulent apartments.
The origins of Fontainebleau can be traced back to 1137 when Louis VII came to the throne. Subsequent monarchs made their own changes to the interiors and the park grounds; this includes the creation of the Grand Parterre in the 17th century, which was to become Europe’s largest formal garden.
