You will be able to discover a full furnished castle (don't miss the magnificent rocky woodwork of the Apartment of the Assembly), you have to take a pick as well to the French garden with canals and islands and an English garden as well.
It is in the park that you will find the two most exceptional places of the visit: the Queen's Dairy, built for Marie-Antoinette by Louis XVI, and the Shell Cottage with its majestic decoration of mother-of-pearl and shells, built at the request of the Duke of Penthièvre for the Princess of Lamballe. Buildings that will not leave you indifferent.
In the castle’s surroundings, you you’ll see the pleasant paths of the Rambouillet forest, former hunting territory of the kings, a beautiful piece of French nature that is just waiting for you to visit it.
