"Whether you have visited Chateau de Fontainbleau or not, Flammarion's book A Day at Chateau de Fontainbleau is a feast for the eyes and a worthwhile adventure, offering a rare view into areas of the chateau that guests could not personally access."

"Whereas many chateaux are associated primarily with a particular resident or royal, Chateau de Fontainebleau represents almost 1,000 years of French ruling dynasties. A Day at Chateau de Fontainebleau offers not only insights into the history, art and culture of France throughout the centuries, but also the lives of those who inhabited this magnificent French landmark." A Day at the Chateau de Fontainebleau is a fascinating illustrated guide to the chateau de Fontainebleau, one of the most well-preserved, historically rich chateaus in the whole of France. . . . I highly recommend A Day at the Chateau de Fontainebleau for anyone with an interest in French history, French architecture, and historical buildings."
-ViveLaQueen Blog A Day at Chateau de Fontainbleau is a beautifully illustrated book about the exceptionally well-preserved Chateau near Paris. It brings to life the history of this enormous castle with stories and anecdotes from its past . . . If you've never been there, you'll feel like you know the chateau from this book, and if you have been there, the book will transport you straight back in your mind..."

"Akin to a private tour, A Day at Chateau de Fontainebleau gives readers an up-close view of this former royal residence, once home to the likes of Francois I, Louis XIV, and Napoleon. With its many photos of the palace's sumptuous details and its sometimes intimate though often sweeping architecture, the book makes it crystal clear why this chateau has earned its reputation as one of France's architectural gems."
