Lovely place, totally recommend to visit the castle and then wander around the lovely parc which is open most of the time.

Gotta say the grass is just great and there's many lakes and fountains...

Recommend it for a sunny day tho.

Unfortunately the chateau was undergoing necessary restoration on our visit, so most of the external views of the architecture were covered up. However, I should imagine its beautiful. The chateau is situated​ at the end of the main street, just off the town square, in a lovely park. Well worth a visit and taking a picnic to enjoy what is on offer.

The castle was under construction when we visited, but the gardens are beautiful. You can rent a boat for a ride on the lake or you can rent a bike/ kart to visit the garden

The Chateau was under renovation when we visited buy the gardens were lovely. Nice place to spend half a day. The town has a charm of its own

The Chateau is correctly under repair and not open to the public. However the grounds are open and if you are in Rambouillet, they are definitely worth having a walk around.
