  • This was surprisingly nice place to visit. On the outskirts of Paris its less crowded and very well maintained. The gardens outside are stunning and you can find distinct variety of flowers. The castle inside is perhaps like any other castle but all in all gives a great experience on visit.
  • Lovely little mansion with grounds.
  • Super parc en plein centre ville !
  • Piaget 750 species of old roaes
  • Glory to the Emperor and to his hen. The House still broadcasts the soul Napi. On the other hand, do not rely on the film Napoleon of Simoneau.
