Interesting insight into lives of Josephine and Napoleon. Beautifully restored rooms. 30 - 40 minutes is enough to tour the chateau. Takes longer to get there from central Paris than to visit the chateau, but the trip allows one to get a glimpse of suburban Paris.
Historically very important. The interior has amazing pieces, but the exterior could have some restoration. The gardens are not so beautiful as I thought it would be.
I like the atmosphere of this house... The gardens are gorgeous and the legendary napoleon worked here
Beautiful place but you should pay 1,5 euros to go into de garden and 6 euros to go into the château.
Beautiful gardens, the château was beautiful as well. Gardens was what caught my eye, though.
