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.

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.

  • On the theme of the forest, tales, the exhibition was held in the basement with lights, sails, models to suggest the atmosphere of fairy tales. It was a good idea but it lacked animation. In addition, he had to know tales to restore the atmosphere a little. Small could be afraid of a witch.

  • beautiful well furnished Castle. Built by Mansart and the movie Vatel with Depardieu there was turned in the kitchens of the sub floor. The perspective on the seine and in the past is worth the look.

  • A classic French chateau inside and out. The front of it is currently under restauration to bring it back to it's former glory. Not too expensive and 10 minutes walk from town centre and train lines.
  • One of my favorite castles in the Paris region. I've been here several times and its always good to come back. Usually pretty quiet, no crowds. Nice to know scenes from the english series "Versailles" were filmed here. The interior of the chateau is fabulous, it looks well maintained. Next to the state rooms and apartments you van also visit the cellars with the kitchens and bathroom.
  • A look and accessible castle in the middle of town.
  • Compact et comfortable chateau 👍
  • Beautiful and well kept
