Visit Napoleon and Josephine's private castle in Rueil-Malmaison and experience a fascinating guided tour of the 17th-century Château, visit the private residence and love-nest of the first wife of the Emperor and her husband Napoleon Bonaparte, between 1799 and 1804. The residence is a must-see if you are a Napoleon admirer or simply fond of history since he used to spend time to work and relax there.
The Malmaison castle houses an extraordinary collection of Empire furniture, Napoleonic art objects and decors created by the architects Percier and Fontaine. After their divorce, Josephine kept on living in this residence until she passed away from a chest infection in 1814.
Enjoy the charm of this "place in the country" with your tour guide who will tell you personal stories about Josephine and Napoleon's lives, the important decisions taken in this elegant small chateau in Malmaison (it became for a while the heart of the French Government) and also the parties (receptions, balls) organized there during the First Empire.
