Come and discover the château of Champs-sur-Marne located 18km to the east of Paris and one of the finest examples of neo-classical architecture in the Île-de-France region. Its rococo decoration and rich furniture bring back to life the refined setting of Enlightenment country houses.

Let me get this "negative" out of the way: it's a little, just a little, work to get here. But the positive side is that, other than the sheer elegance of the place, it's the best asset - few people bother to make the effort. You'll have the place practically to yourself. I spent a whole August day here and... More

We visited here as we were running out of time to visit Versailles and wanted to have visited at least one castle during our trip to France! There's an easy access car park across the road, although aim to get there early because it fills up very quickly. There's also a massive garden opposite that car park that you can... More

Worth the travel there by car. You need a GPS for sure, but for 7.50 Euros, the admission fee was reasonable. Gives a good sense of history. Great large grounds for very long walks on the trails. Take unlimited pictures (no flash).

If you're staying near Disneyland (or even in Paris) go visit this castle! It's cheaper, calmer and closer than Versailles. The castle is well maintained and the garden is huge ! A really nice place to have a piquenique for example. Also it's easy to visit for example with kids as the castle is not that big.

Day trippin' is always a joy while spending intense time being cosseted in the wonderful throes of a Parisian holiday. Within an hour's journey aboard a choo-choo there's a plethora of magical journeys to be experienced. My concierge asked which castle in my opinion has played host to Prince Philip, marce Proust and Madame Pompadour?. He laughed at my unusual... More

Excellent chateau to visit if you don't want to spend too much time queuing at some other big chateaux... Close to Disneyland Paris, RER A: Champs sur Marne.

It is a hidden gem. I have been to Versailles, Le Louvre, and many other old palaces in and near Paris before, but only this morning did I have the true pleasure of visiting Chateau Champs-sur-Marne. I love it because it is small (everything is relative) and gorgeously designed. The architecture is stately yet lovable. One could imagine what it... More

Since it is not located in Paris, there were not many tourists. At least I could enjoy the tranquility while I was walk around the garden and inside of castle. It recalled me Chateaux de Versailles a little bit but smaller size. Fresh air of course, if you are tired of crowded big city, pls visit small town and have... More

This chateau is on two floors with grand views over the well tended gardens. Now only 85 ha rather than the 600 ha of old. It is not huge, about 20-25 rooms. Nearby parking is free, and there are plenty of staff to help you or answer your questions. The good points are that there are few tourists here, the... More
