The inside story
Located 50km southwest of Paris, the Château de Rambouillet was originally a fortified manor dating back to 1368. The castle became in 1783 the private property of Louis XVI who commissioned the construction of the Laiterie de la Reine (the Queen's dairy) to induce his wife to like his new acquisition.
First confiscated during the French Revolution, the castle became during the reign of Napoleon I a government-owned property. Generations of sovereigns took possession of the Castle and its park that became the theater of royal opulence and intrigues.
