Francine's place was impeccably clean and the location was less than 10 minutes (walking) to INSEAD. But the best part was meeting Francine herself because, as other reviewers have mentioned, she is incredibly helpful and kind. She and her husband even helped me carry my large suitcases when I moved in. I would suggest staying here if you want a modern, clean, and safe place to stay in Fontainebleau!

Francine is the best host EVER! We lived here for 2 months and felt thoroughly pampered! House was cleaned every alternate week, we had an AC during the summer and fans for the living room area. On arrival to Fontainebleau, Francine picked us up from the station,helped with our extremely heavy bags and also had our fridge stocked with the basics, many of which I used till the end of our stay. She is extremely responsive for anything you could possibly need or have a question about. We will really miss her and her husband Denis - they are such good people! They have set the bar high for AirBnBs, so be prepared to never like any other AirBnB as much as this one! :) Thank you so much Francine and Denis! Love, Adi & Aparna

Thank you for everything Francine! We stayed in the apartment for the period when my husband is studying for the MBA at Insead. We found the apartment very well furnished and tastefully decorated. It is really a beautiful apartment, located on a quiet street. It is 5 minutes walk to the campus, 5 minutes walk to the town centre. Francine was so kind to provide us with some food on our Day 1 as it was a public holiday. She was so kind to pick me up from the train station when I came for the viewing. She made sure that we had everything we needed and she is very responsive to our questions. We made absolutely the right choice to stay at Francine's apartment. Thank you again Francine!

The apartment is lovely and Francine is the perfect host! She was very kind and friendly. All little details were set. Good wi-fi connection, very comfortable bedroom, a good wardrobe, a useful kitchen and washing machine. Perfect for those who want to visit the city, 6 minutes walk from INSEAD and Chateau! Definitely my best AirBNB experience! Thanks for everything Francine!!!

Francine was waiting for our arrival, she showed us around the beautiful apartment and made us feel very welcome. The fridge and cupboards were filled with some lovely treats for us! The apartment is on a quiet street, but within walking distance to the forest and to the town. Francine was easy to contact while we were on our trip, she helped us organise a day trip to Paris via train. Francine has provided lots of information for days out and maps of the area. We really enjoyed our stay and would go back and stay at Francines place in a heartbeat.

Now 58 years old, I love literature, cinema and music. I am a French teacher and my husband works in Paris in a company of health marketing. We are both fond of French cuisine, wine and fine restaurants. We have lived in Fontainebleau for more than 20 years and love the town and its surroundings. The studio and the apartment in which we'd be happy to welcome you are our daughter's and son's, who are studying in New York City and Paris. The two places are brand-new and freshly renovated for our children when they come back. You will love them and we will know how to welcome you so you have the best time in the great town of Fontainebleau.
See you soon!

58 ans, passionnée de littérature, de cinéma et de musique, je donne des cours de français. Avec mon mari qui travaille à Paris dans le secteur de la communication santé, nous partageons le goût de la gastronomie, des bons restaurants et de la convivialité autour d'un bon verre de vin. Nous vivons à Fontainebleau depuis plus de 20 ans et adorons la ville et sa région. Le studio et l'appartement que nous proposons sont ceux de notre fille et de notre fils qui font respectivement leurs études à New York et à Paris. Nous les avons refaits à neuf pour eux. Ils vous plairont et nous saurons vous accueillir comme nous aimons l'être lorsque nous voyageons.
A bientôt !
