Fodor's Expert Review Parc du Château

Rambouillet Park (National/State/Provincial)

An extensive park—complete with island-dotted lake—stretches behind the château. Within it is the Laiterie de la Reine (Queen's Dairy), built for Marie-Antoinette: inspired by the writings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, she came here to escape from the pressures of court life, pretending to be a simple milkmaid. It has a small marble temple and grotto and, nearby, the shell-lined Chaumière des Coquillages (Shell Pavilion).
