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.
The 85-hectare palace gardens figure on France's list of Remarkable Gardens and are indeed among the most beautiful in the Île-de-France region. Highlights are the French-style formal garden with its magnificent embroidery-like flowerbeds, the long perspective down towards the Marne and the landscaped garden, all of which are wonderful places for a wander.
The green-fingered among you mustn't miss the annual France-wide Rendez-vous aux Jardins event held on the first weekend in June when the country's public and private gardens are open to visitors.
