  CHAUMIèRE AUX COQUILLAGES

and the LAITERIE DE LA REINE.

Yje two "follies" in the grounds of the Ch?teau de RAMBOUILLET illustrate the taste for nature fashinable in the late 18th Century.

You could call it "kitsch" now, but is has it charm!

The sea-shell-thatched cottage, decorated by the Duke of Penthi?re for the Princess de Lamballe, has some of the most beautiful marble, mother-of-pearl and shell decorations in EUROPE!

So this makes it a real MUST for us all!

The Queen's DAIRY, constructed during the reign of Louis XVI for MARIE-ANTOINETTE, houses the sculpture ALMATH?E ET LA NYMPHE by PIERRE JULIEN.

The very idea: A QUEEN'S DAIRY..........well, times have changed, our queen certainly has no DAIRY of her own!

OPEN: daily!

There are guided tours if requested.

Optional combined admission to the CASTLE.
