Areas in Rambouillet
When to go
The nobles tended to come here in summer, but these days Rambouillet is a year-round destination. The leafy forest and flower-spotted meadows com alive in the warmer months, but the area is just as charming in autumn.
PlanesParis Orly is the closest of the capital’s airports, just 35 minutes’ drive away. You can fly directly from London Heathrow, Manchester and Birmingham. If you’re coming from elsewhere, you’ll probably touch down at Paris Charles de Gaulles; from there, it’s around an hour’s drive to most places in Rambouillet.
TrainsCatch the Eurostar from St Pancras International to Paris Gare Du Nord, then hop onto Metro line 4 (the blue one) to Montparnasse-Bienvenue, where you can take regional services to Rambouillet.
AutomobilesIf you don’t mind driving yourself, a car will come in handy: there’s plenty to see in the surrounding countryside and public transport’s pretty thin on the ground. The Smith24 team can arrange your hire.
