Fodor's Expert Review Bergerie Nationale

Rambouillet Farm/Ranch
Located within Parc du Château, the Bergerie Nationale (National Sheepfold) is the site of a more serious agricultural venture: the famous Rambouillet Merinos raised here, prized for the quality and yield of their wool, are descendants of sheep imported from Spain by Louis XVI in 1786. A museum alongside tells the tale and evokes shepherd life. Don't miss the wonderful boutique—it features products from the farm, including fromage de brebis (sheep's milk cheese), produce, potted pâtés, jams, honey, and, of course, wool.
