Hotel Description

Partly out of respect for its heritage and partly out of dedicated conservation efforts, Fontainebleau has managed to keep its tourist traffic surprisingly reasonable over the years. Just ask the steady stream of present-day Parisians who continue to favor this erstwhile regal residence — and its bucolic surrounding forest — for a weekend excursion. In any case, even the terminally unimpressed would double-take at Hotel La Demeure du Parc, a well-preserved 17th-century boutique a mere stone’s throw from the palace proper.

Times have changed a bit since its heyday as a rustic retreat for Ancien Régime title-bearers; nowadays, most anyone can imbibe the high-proof sophistication rippling from the commune’s centerpiece château. Big picture, we pass through a carriage gate to the massive central garden, loosely encompassed by a trio of terraced pavilions. True to form, meticulous trails thread their way through the storybook parkland — stone pond, oversize brazier — perfect for a post-meal constitutional or a lordly survey of the grounds. And, astutely, rooms correct for all that with contemporary design sensibilities: today’s cosmopolitans will appreciate the clean-lined, cream-toned rooms as much for their smooth oak flooring and Maison Fragonard amenities as their enchanting garden views.

Frédéric Vardon oversees a series of just-right gastronomic interpretations of immortal French classics at La Table du Parc, whose earthy, woody interior plays an excellent supporting actor to the inspired plates. The cocktail lounge, too, lands pitch-perfect with a canopy ceiling, pendant Edison bulbs, and a lengthy bar staffed by preternaturally gifted barkeeps. It’s very much a place for taking one’s time — in appreciation of the performative mixology and over extraordinary vintages with friends. One could get used to this sort of thing; come often enough and you may find yourself dubbed an honorary Bellifontain.
