With an imperial palace listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Fontainebleau is an historic location, having once served as a rural retreat for the French royal court. Located in the beautiful Seine et Marne department, some 60 km from Paris, it possesses a unique cultural heritage, as well as a superb family hotel nestling amidst its bucolic charms. La Demeure du Parc will open mid-September to celebrate the summer with the first guests of the season.
