The park of the castle of Rambouillet consists of an English garden and a French garden. It is certainly one of the most beautiful parks of the castles of the Paris region.
Le Château de Rambouillet is easy to access, it is located at about 1 hour from Paris.
A few words to describe the environment, the castle belonged to various personalities before becoming a royal domain with the purchase of the property by Louis XVI who built a dairy for the Queen as in Versailles. The estate then fell into oblivion before becoming a holiday resort for presidents from 1886. General de Gaulle gave many receptions in Rambouillet. Today the castle is no longer a presidential residence, it can be visited, the entrance ticket gives access to the castle, the dairy of the Queen and the Chaumière aux coquillages. The park can be visited free of charge and is worth the trip on its own, the opening hours are usual.

très beau parc. l'intérieur du château a peu d'intérêt, vus les remaniements successifs; Mention spéciale : la chaumière aux coquillages.

du chateau a laiterieen passant par la chaumiere aux coquillages 300m en vole d'oiseaux ou plus 1 km de marche dur par les températures.
The start is near the city centre, you can of course park directly next to the castle but I think it is more interesting to discover the castle on foot. The parking is free on Sundays. There is also a limited time parking.
We go along the road to reach the other part of the castle (Queen's Dairy, English garden...). Further on you will find another entrance to return to the park.
You can visit the park of the Dairy free of charge, the access to the interior is paying. The Dairy is a gift from Louis XVI to Marie-Antoinette as in Versailles.
