Chateau de Fontainebleau is located at the southeast center of Paris. It was the residence of the monarch for the kings of Napoleon. People loved to compare The Versailles Palace with the Chateau de Fontainebleau. But I think they are offering a different vibes in perspective. If you went to Versailles it will feel overwhelmed by the tourist than Chateau de Fontainebleau. This would be a perfect destination for you.
