The Chateau de Fontainebleau is celebrated for its luxurious decor, preciosity and elaborately-designed furniture within a family oriented environment. It holds more than 1500 pieces in the heart of 320 acres of parks and gardens. We take pride in our newly restored decor, objects and spaces, special exhibitions, family friendly activities, and rare masterpieces, thanks to our dedicated visitors and sponsors.

Help preserve the Chateau de Fontainebleau, the prestigious French monument ranked in UNESCO World Heritage Site, which allows todays and future generations to encounter first-hand the lives of many great French kings.

"In all of France, there was nothing remotely resembling the effusions of splendor and carnal beauty that grace its walls."

A WORD FROM JEAN-FRANCOIS HEBERT


"An authentic royal and imperial castle. An unforgettable experience for all ages. A must see.

Your contribution not only opens doors to previously inaccessible Pope's apartments, backstage rooms, fragile masterpieces, and more, but also enriches our cultural and educational programs for the public.

Just as Fontainebleau occupied a special place in the hearts of all French sovereigns, we hope to share this passion with you.

Thank you."

Jean-François Hebert

President of Château de Fontainebleau
