The Châteaux de Malmaison, also known as the Palace of Malmaison, takes its name from the Normans who once invaded France.

Built in the 18th century the Palace of Malmaison had been owned by rich families for centuries, but during the French Revolution, they were forced to sell it to Joséphine Bonaparte, wife of Napoléon.

She purchased this exquisite home for the equivilant of about 45,000 euros, which was considered to be a small fortune at that time. When Napoloan returned from Egypt, he took ownership of the palace and decorated it with the new imperial style.

It was later purchased by the Queen of Spain and then eventually sold back to Napoléan III, who restored the home to its orginal splendour. In 1906, the castle was turned into a museum dedicated to the lives of Napoléon and Joséphine.
