Château de Malmaison
Les jardins de Malmaison

The Malmaison estate is an authentic example of the imperial era.

Furniture, tapestries, woodwork, paintings and many collections of period objects make the Château de Malmaison a precious gem from the First Empire.

The 6-hectare park reflects the Empress’ passion thanks to the reintroduction of plants that grew there in her time, the prominent display of monuments and the views of the landscape that have been preserved.
