The Château de Champs-sur-Marne, built in the early 18th century by Jean-Baptiste Bullet de Chamblain, is a superb example of Classical architecture. It has been lived in by a variety of eminent figures, including the Marchioness of Pompadour, the Princess of Conti and the Dukes of La Vallière. This listed national palace and historic monument is home to a fantastic collection of antique furniture and paintings.
