    Our pier is located in front of Fontainebleau Castle at Etang aux Carpes. Come and enjoy this idyllic setting by taking a walk on board our rowing boats, which will delight young and old alike.
    Easy to manoeuvre, from the Etang aux Carpes you can take a distance to admire the grandeur and extent of the Château de Fontainebleau, located not far from the forest.
    From the Marin D'eau Douce boats you can admire the entire Château of Fontainebleau as well as the gardens and the pavilion of the pond located in the very centre of this pond.
    A moment of relaxation as cultural as it is exotic.

    You have the possibility to ride your boat with a snack and champaign.
    Prices depend on your order.
