Sign up for a fencing week end in Fontainebleau, 4 - 6 November 2005!
Fontainebleau, what and where?
France southeast of Paris. Its chateau (built by Francis I) was long a royal palace and is now the summer residence of the president of France. Population: 15,942. The town has a grand air with immense historic interest. It is also internationally renown for being host to major show jumping, racing and rock climbing events.
So, what's the best way to get there?
Eurostar from London Waterloo to Paris Gare du Nord (£49.50 if booked in advance), then one stop by RER to Gare de Lyon where frequent trains to Fontainebleau (cost £5 ) take you there in 45 minutes.
Arrive on Friday, 4 November and check into the hotel with the views on the Royal Castle. Back on Sunday evening. In between we're in the hands of Priscille!
What is she planning for us?
Many of you have met Priscille who was coaching at the club in July and August. Priscille grew up in Fontainebleau and knows the area as the back of her hand. We're coming first of all to have a friendly fencing match with her club on Saturday afternoon. However Priscille promises much more then that. Visit to the Royal Castle. Flights on her aeroplane (extra £25 please). Medieval artists' village. Hike in the forest which is the largest and most beautiful national forests in France. Frequent visits to the bar run by Priscille's best friend. Bored French women who want to practise their English on you. Anything else you want and dare to do!
