Les Bréviaires, Napoleon III’s Divine Chateau in Yvelines

The little commune of Les Bréviaires, in the heart of the forest of Rambouillet in Yvelines, is home to a divine Napoleon III-style chateau.

Yvelines, in the greater Paris region, abounds in former royal residences, noble palaces and historic homes, nestled in the national forest of Rambouillet, which was formerly the hunting-grounds of the kings of France. This is a natural heritage site with rare flora and fauna, which charms the family-owners of chateaux with the lustre of authenticity.
