L'Empereur


Château de Malmaison, located in the town of Reuil-Malmaison just outside of Paris, was purchased by Josephine de Beauhamais while her husband was off fighting in the Egyptian campaign. Upon his return, he was not pleased that she had spent such a sum (300,000 francs) on what was a home in much need of renovations.

I recommend taking this side trip if you have the time while visiting Paris. The home is lovely as well as the grounds.
