Perks for the Parents

This traditional country house, close to the Fontainebleau forest, includes a pool, garden and contemporary design. Well set up for families and larger groups, this 5-bedroom home has mostly ensuite bathrooms, with a shared bathroom with tub ideal for younger children. The kitchen has an informal breakfast table attached to the island, great for kids, and there is a high capacity washer-dryer on the premises. Storage is offered in the bedrooms with additional storage areas in the kids bedrooms for bulky items.The outside area is vast and green, fully enclosed and with lots of space for kids and adults to ride bikes and play sports. The house is also on the edge of the Fontainebleau forest for fun walks and hiking.

Why Kids Love it

Children of all ages appreciate and love the open spaces; adults can sit and have conversations while children run around inside or outside. With outdoor toys, swings and a pool, there is plenty for the kids to enjoy. Inside, there is a large box of toys. Bedrooms are set up for families, with low level beds and one bedroom with a mezzanine level which works as a secret bedroom for kids over the age of 6. All baby accessories including high chairs, portable cribs, toys and more are included. There is a pony club in the equestrian center 100m away from the house, owned by the Olympic medal-winning Bost family. Fontainebleau has many kids activities, from a small train that goes around the castle to the kids carousel nearby.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. Security notes: the private pool is gated (but not heated); there is a safety gate at the top and bottom of the stairs inside and the access to the mezzanine level is by a ladder, firmly attached to the wall but removable if needed. We would recommend the mezzanine level for those aged 6 and up. Between May and August, the pool can be heated for €50 per day. Sleeping cots/beds, bathtubs and toddler high chairs are available at no cost (please request on booking). New fire extinguishers can be found in the kitchen (ground floor), and another one in the hallway (first floor). There is high speed broadband WiFi and network cable throughout, with over 500 French and foreign channels available. Smart TVs offer access to Netflix, Amazon Videos and YouTube streaming services. There is central heating in winter and silent fans in summer.

Style Notes

Modern classic. This traditional French country home in the ultra desirable Barbizon village, close to Fontainebleau forest, blends the best of classic and modern design. With spacious and uncluttered spaces and a large garden, there is space for all the family, especially suitable for a multi-family or large family break. The home has been remodeled by an interior designer and features high-end appliances and modern furniture. Focus has been to brighten up the living spaces, offer a modern kitchen, and to add modern day convenience with ensuite bathrooms in most bedrooms. The outside park is landscaped and is securely walled making it safe for children. We love the sophisticated modern fireplace, the snug lounge with a view of the garden, and the sleek contemporary kitchen.

Hi , Christian and Zeina here ! We are delighted to bring our newly remodeled home near Paris, France to Kids and Coe. Our house has positive vibes and offers a private park and pool. It is conveniently located within walking distance from Barbizon Village which is also easily accessible from Paris in about 40 mins. We have 3 young children and our work assignements have successively made us live in London, Paris, Miami, Dubai and presently in Dublin, Ireland. We speak English and French and also a bit of Italian and Spanish so we will be happy to answer any questions you may have related to the house, location or booking. We are thrilled to have been able to bring this typical french countryhouse into the 21st century by adding ensuite bathrooms, new technologies and premium materials to the traditional house. The house is peaceful and bright and our gourmet kitchen is spacious and well equipped to allow you to cook and treat friends and relatives. As responsible parents we have also made sure our home and surroundings are all safe children of all ages. We sincerely hope you will have a great time there.

Barbizon village, Outside Paris

Walking in the footsteps of painters

An hour to the south of Paris, Barbizon is known as a painter’s village, and includes galleries to browse, sculpture studios and a taste of creativity in the air. Take walks in the Fontainebleau forest where Millet, Rousseau and Corot painted, saddle up and ride horses in the nearby countryside, or just explore the pretty, characterful streets of this beautiful village.
