A must see if you have been to Paris several times. But note that it might be difficult to find a place to eat nearby - at least on a Monday in July. However, a picnic in the park could be recommended.
Despite being Napoleon and Josephine' house ( until he dumped her), surprisingly modest house in size, quality and furnishings. Nothing special. A little mini-museum upstairs was more interesting for its history, but not worth a tourist's limited and extremely valuable time. There are a large...More
We visited this chateau with another couple. Very interesting history. The gardens and small carriage museum are worth visiting as well. A nice option in addition to or instead of super crowded Versailles.
This place is just a honey . A small but VERY impressive house with charming garden areas and a very good audio guide. I loved it. I had read that it was a bit run down and the rose gardens were not impressive but we...More

As I recall there is no cafe - the Chateau is too small to warrant a cafe on the premises. If you look at a map of the area, about a mile away is the town center for Ruell-Malmaison and there seems to be a number of restaurants there. Enjoy your visit there!
I visited on a cold rainy day in December , It was easy and pleasant to get around the house as there were few other people there . Good if you like to study the house contents in detail . But much too cold and wet to enjoy... More
