Well furnished. Super Quiet overlooking a nice flowered garden. A charming place. Insead students are welcome and will get a price reduction.
It was a lovely experience living in Gerard's place for two months. The apartment is a perfect place for a single person or a couple to spend a weekend in Fontainebleau or a few months if you're an INSEADer. Everything was provided, the place was spotless when I arrived, and Gerard was very responsive at dealing with any questions or issues I encountered. Highly recommended!
Gerard was an outstanding host! We communicated several times prior to our arrival and then on the day that we arrived he generously met us at the train station, loaded our luggage into his car, gave us a quick tour of the town, and then drove us to his apartment and helped us settle in. The apartment was perfectly located downtown-- a short walk to the outdoor market (on Tues, Fri, and Sunday) and a 20 minute walk to the campus of INSEAD. The apartment had big windows and lots of natural light from a terrace. It was perfectly furnished for one or two people. At the end of our week long stay, Gerard returned and kindly drove us back to the Fontainebleau Train Station where we took a train to Paris. I would recommend Gerard's apartment for anyone visiting Fontainebleau who prefers to stay in an accommodation with a kitchen (rather than a hotel). I was participating in a conference at INSEAD, and while Gerard's apartment was not close to campus, it was just a 10 minute taxi ride (for 16 Euros) or a 20-25 minute walk. All in all it was a great stay, thanks to Gerard's hospitality.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le charme de l'appartement de Gérard. L'appartement est situé en plein centre ville, tout près des magasins, des restaurants et du château. Gérard est très accueillant et prévenant : il est venu nous chercher en voiture à la gare, nous a indiqué des adresses utiles. Il a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable. Un grand merci à lui !
I stayed at Gerard's flat during a conference in Fontainebleau early September 2012. Gerard is a wonderful host that went to great lengths to help me out with travel logistics and making my stay enjoyable. The flat itself is very spacious and charming. The main living room is bright and airy, with a high ceiling and doors out to the gorgeous (and huge!) balcony. The kitchen is equipped with all the basic utilities one would expect and there is superb wifi at hand. Overall, I would strongly recommend this option for anyone visiting Fontainebleau!
