4.2/5 based on 130 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.

  • There are quite some time ago, I was part of the extras of a film. It is as I have had the pleasure of visiting this gem. It is very easy to access and allows a pleasant walk outside in the gardens. It's a place that I liked to visit again recently
