The Pays de Fontainebleau, between castle, forest and villages of character.
Central axis of tourist development in southern Seine-et-Marne, its unique natural setting and its exceptional historical heritage constitute undeniable assets. The Pays de Fontainebleau is: 22,000 hectares of forest, 5 characterful villages and more than 75 monuments classified in the inventory of historic monuments.
The Pays de Fontainebleau is qualified as an exceptional equestrian destination. The city of Fontainebleau is also deeply attached to this tradition: with its mounted brigade and its close links with the Republican Guard. A royal city with its castle, its squares and its sumptuous theater, it is a haven of peace, nestled in the heart of the forest, labeled ©Forêt d’Exception.
Thus, the Pays de Fontainebleau is an ideal destination for horse riding, leisure or competitive, as well as for horseback riding offered in the forest.
