Schloss von Champs-sur-Marne

31 Rue de Paris, Marne la Vallee, France

The basics

Built as an 18th-century pleasure palace by royal architect Jean-Baptiste Bullet de Chamblain, today the Château de Champs-sur-Marne has been returned to its former glory. A prime example of classical French architecture, the palace’s opulent decor speaks to its regal history, while its 210 acres (84 hectares) of formal gardens are just as notable as its interior. Some multi-day tours of the Seine and Loire valleys combine the Château de Champs-sur-Marne with other glorious châteaux and vineyards.

Explore Château de Vincennes

For a different—but no less impressive—château visit in Île-de-France, discover the Château de Vincennes (located in the Bois de Vincennes, just southeast of Paris proper). With its dramatic medieval architecture—including its soaring fortified tower—the château offers a strong visual counterpoint to the Château de Champs-sur-Marne’s classical look.
