There is a wide range of accommodation available in Fontainebleau for rock climbers. There are several campsites, Gites (self-catering holiday cottages), expensive hotels, budget hotels and self-catering apartments.
This is a large campsite near Milly-La-Foret, in the heart of the Trois Pignons bouldering area, and hence is very popular with climbers.
Facilities include 2 large toilet/shower/washing blocks which are of a high standard. There is also an open air swimming pool and a children's play area.
The site is open from the middle of February to the end of November. It gets very busy during the main holiday periods so it is best to book.
