About ANTONIA DENAVIT
I like to travel, meet new people, new cultures, new places. I have been in many countries throughout the world. I have some experiences - and expectations - as to how to optimize a stay: all in the details! I love to go out with friends and family but I also love to stay home and watch a movie in a cozy sofa. When traveling, I would rather play by ear than follow a strict check list. I would expect my guests to feel at home the minute they arrive!
ANTONIA DENAVIT purchased this House in 1996
Why ANTONIA DENAVIT chose Saint-Martin-en-Bière
Love at first sight! Perfect combination of place, charm, location, safety, calm and adorable village just 2 mn away from the picturesque village of Barbizon! Located at 45 mn from Paris, our house is the perfect getaway for cultural and sport (bouldering, bicycling, golfing, horseback riding...) activities, to be enjoyed with friends and families all year round!
What makes this House unique
It is a 17th century farm made of sandstones that has been entirely renovated with taste and loads of character!

Beautiful gite, perfect location
I just wanted to email to let you know we had a fabulous stay to your beautiful house last week. Everyone loved the house and garden. We have travelled as a group and stayed at several gites in the area over the last 6 years (changing gites as our families expand!). I’m happy to report that this was the best place we have ever stayed in. It had everything we needed in the kitchen (and more), the garden was safe and secure for the children to play and explore, and the location was within 20 minutes of all the bouldering in the area. The week flew by too quickly.
Thank you for providing 2 baby cots and the highchair, much appreciated.
We would love to stay again at some point.
Thank you so much Jess for your kind words; I am very happy you and your friends enjoyed your stay. My kids are grown up now; getting the two baby cots and the highchair brought back nice memories! I very much look forward to welcoming you again soon!
We arrived at the end of July 2016 and stayed for a week. We were greeted by the owner (Antonia) who took time to show us around her beautiful house. As a fairly large group (5 Adults, 3 teenagers) we had plenty of space. The layout of the house and the gardens meant that whether we were cooking, playing or wanting a bit of quiet time the property easily accommodated everyone's needs. The house itself is quite amazing. All the rooms are large and lovingly decorated. The house had everything we needed and more. It really did feel like a home from home. The gardens surrounding the property are lovely too, and the kids (old and young) maybe spent too much time on the trampoline and table tennis. Barbizon is a 15-20 min walk (5 min bicycle ride) from the house and is a bustling, artistic and picturesque village where we spent time eating and drinking in the local bars and bistros. The people were incredibly friendly and the food was always good. The surrounding Forrest is great for walking, bouldering and cycling. All in all, we had a very special holiday at this very special property. The house is stunning and we loved our time here. Would come again without hesitation.
Thank you so much Nick for the fabulous review! I am so happy you and your family enjoyed the house and the garden. Come back anytime soon, you'll be most welcome!
Wonderful property perfect for a family break!
This property is truly beautiful and a perfect setting for a large family break and get together. My wife and I stayed with our 3 children, wife's brother and sister in law and their 3 children and my in-laws and had loads of space to get together but still have space to feel comfortable! The garden space has loads of different areas for the kids to explore and the property is well fitted out for our needs. Only additional item I would recommend purchasing, given that the property is perfect for family gatherings, would be a high chair for babies and also more regular garden maintenance to show the garden off to its best! Loved our stay and would recommend to anyone! Thank you
Thank you so much David. I am happy you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon!
Stunning house with large beautiful gardens, perfect for exploring Fontainebleau forest
Antonia was very welcoming and helpful - we even had some British tea bags waiting for us on arrival. She was always available to answer questions and made sure everything ran very smoothly.
The property was absolutely stunning, beautifully situated on the edge of Fontainebleau forest, perfect for our group bouldering in the area.
Plenty of parking and lots of space makes it a perfect property for larger groups or families - there is even a trampoline!
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone interested in staying in the area - we'll certainly be heading back again!
Thank you so much Alex! I am happy you enjoyed the house and the garden. Hope to see you again soon, it will always be a pleasure!
one week in Fontainebleau
It was a great week in a beautiful house. We want to come back as soon as possible
Thank you very much Antonia
Greetings from Dortmund
Thank you Christoph! Please come back anytime!
We really enjoyed the vacation in Antonia Denavits house. The House is very well designed and the furniture and style gives you immediatelly a warm and cosy feeling. Everything worked well and the TV and Audio Equipment is of high Standard. The House has enough space for 2 families with kids. The graden is a pleasure a as the different parts of the garden always offer something to explore and enjoy. Antonia cares for her guests and gives you the feeling of being extremely welcome. We highly recommend this house and will for sure come back one day.
Thank you so much Ameli for the nice words; I am so happy you enjoyed the house and the garden. Your enthusiasm, and that of your lovely family, is very much appreciated! We'd love to see you again soon!
There are two outdoor community swimming pools at ten minute-drive from the house: in Villiers en Bière and in Melun (this latter is an olympic pool with a relaxing area in grass plus it has some games: volley, badminton): great for hot summer days!
