Over the course of time the 14th century fortified castle has been home to a number of illustrious personnages who gradually transformed it into a delightful residence acquired by Louis XVI. The royal estate is now a presidential residence, open to...more
There are so many brilliant chateaus in France, but not here. The building is large, but you get to see just a few rooms, perhaps 10% of the chateau. Many of them have no furnishings or decorations. Little info on the history of the place....More
It was a short 34 minute train ride to Rambouillet from Paris out of Gare Montparnasse that runs every hour. We caught the 1:06 pm train (fast train) and caught the suburban slow train back to Paris. It took one hour and it was so...More
Splendid visit. Don’t forget to book the guided tour of the cottage (chaumière) and dairy (laiterie). The château is very elegant and not too cluttered so you get the chance to appreciate the architecture. The grounds are just fabulous. I just wish I had taken...More
The Château it self is nice felt a little disappointed that you actually only get to see a few rooms and not the whole thing
Also on our Vist they had some very strange art work in the rooms that you could go in which...More
I, too, had to make 2 trips to visit the chateau but since it is only 30 minutes by train from Paris, it was not a big deal to go a second time to see the inside. The first time I went was a Tuesday...More
I love France and its little castles. This one, in particular, I lived very close by and during the sunny days, it was ideal for a stroll. It is small but wonderful, I recommend to stop by and enjoy the view.
We were looking for a side venture traveling back to Paris from Chartres. This lovely chateau is close to A11 and doesn’t take long to tour (20-30 minutes). It was included in our Museum Pass so we were getting added value. The gardens are lovely...More
We arrived after lunch just in time for a guided tour of la Laiterie de la reine et la Chaumière aux coquillages.
The laiterie, a gift of King Louis XVI to his wife, Marie-Antoinette, is a two-room marble structure in which she could invite friends...More
Paid €9 each to walk around a few empty rooms. Worse still, the rooms with contents had really horrific “art” that was so out of touch with the feel of the building.
Honestly, keep driving and go the Chartres or something.
Well--we tried to get to this chateau twice and failed both times. Their website is terrible and has little information about what you'll see or practical information. The first time we arrived they were closed. The second time we arrived they were open but denied...More
