(4.2/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
A 17th century chateau, Chateau of Maisons-Laffitte was built by François Mansart for René de Longueil, who went on to be Louis XIV's Superintendent of Finances. Its architecture is one of the best examples of French classical art. During your tour of the chateau, you will discover the impressive open staircase and its sculpted and restored décor. Also take time to see the King's apartment and his famous Cabinet des Miroirs as well as the superb decor in the Comte d'Artois' dining room.

A horse racing museum is available as well, including two permanent exhibitions in the former kitchens of the chateau. The grand central entrance vestibule of stone was originally enclosed by fine wrought iron grilles, which are today showcased at the Louvre. Chateau of Maisons-Laffitte is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Maisons-Laffitte Edition.

  • Our family frequent since long this beautiful castle built in 1651, since during the second world war, a double keys had been assigned to Madam our whole young mother so that she can monitor if the furniture of the Castle stowed away in the cellars would have suffered from moisture, or a bombing, and that our grandfather horse racing trainer is quoted in the Museum of horse racing! The building is well decorated in Louis XIV style and perspective on the Seine is... Royal.

  • It is the visitors invited to a classmate's birthday party. Access is from the other side of the Castle. Once the present, guided castle tours, dance is danced. Is your room to eat cake, Castle staff are always well Setup and so good was the talk of the parents of the birthday star.
