Queen's dairy in Rambouillet

The Queen's Dairy

Laid out in the historic gardens of the Rambouillet estate, the Laiterie de la Reine is about 1km from the Château. It was in 1785 that Louis XVI took the decision to build a dairy in Rambouillet, where his wife could taste dairy products as in Trianon. This place, intended for the pastoral meetings of Marie-Antoinette, still contains exceptional works. Entirely restored in 2007, the dairy is a remarkable witness to the Art of Living developed at that time in the aristocratic milieu.

Cottage with shells - Rambouillet

The Shell Cottage

Laid out in the historic gardens of the Rambouillet estate, the Chaumière aux coquillages is about 2km from the Château. In the tradition of the Prince of Condé at Chantilly or of Queen Marie-Antoinette at the Trianon, the Duke of Penthièvre had an English garden laid out in the park of his residence, in 1779-1780, embellished with three factories including a thatched cottage. Built for the pleasure of the Princess of Lamballe, her daughter-in-law, it was completely restored in 2005. It has one of the most beautiful decorations of mother-of-pearl and shells in Europe.
