Rambouillet, France17 contributions1 helpful vote
It is very small, in good state. The visit is interesting, a good mix between old and more recent history. However, the parts that are open to visitors are very limited. The arches are gorgeous as a backdrop. One can get very colse to them, however, the state they are in are unsafe to actually touch or climb them so they are visible from up close but not accesibla. In the comments it seems some people are disapointed, but given their state i think it's the right decision of the owners. If you have already been to Paris, Chartres and Rambouillet this is worth the detour. Not a daytrip destination but a nice break especially when the weather is nice enough to enjoy the park.

We stopped off at Maintenon after spending most of the day at Chartres because we saw the village stop on the train on the way out from Paris. I tried to go once before years ago and it was closed. It was beautiful with knowledgeable people and well tended gardens. Louis XIV’s aqueduct is also worth the trip. It was open until 6:30 making it particularly convenient. We walked from the train station but got a cab back.

A heavenly place, a beautiful small palace, an Aqueduct in Roman style, a genius in architecture, Vauban, a wonderful garden of landscape architect Le Notre and a secret queen, here's what you can discover and learn in Maintenon.

The castle and the current exhibition on Mme de Maintenon are worth it! Very interesting, well refurbished and the exhibition gives easy keys to everyone (kids to adults) to understand the social ladder climbing of the lady.
