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

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 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

If in Paris, have an enchanting break visiting the very extensive grounds of the Chateau de Rambouillet, 30 miles south with an easy access by train or car. There are several amazing follies scattered throughout the park and you can admire the jardin à la...More
