According to historical sources, the presence of a dwelling in the domain of Malmaison dates back well before the thirteenth century, but the name "Mala domus" did not appear in the records until 1244. The name is said to be derived from the invaders who settled in the area. Guillaume Goudet, sergeant-at-arms of Charles VI, purchased the land in 1390, and it remained in his family until 1763. The construction of the castle began in the 1600s, and it was rented by its owners to wealthy financiers from 1737. In 1763, the estate was sold to the son of the Chancellor of Aguesseau, and later, in 1771, it was sold to the wealthy banker Jacques-Jean the Couteulx of Molay. The Château de Malmaison became an important part of French history when Empress Joséphine Bonaparte purchased it for 325,000 francs on April 21, 1799. Bonaparte confirmed the purchase upon his return from Egypt and became the true owner. From 1800 to 1802, the castle was transformed into a seat of government where council meetings were held. It was then called the Imperial Palace of Malmaison. After Joséphine's death in 1814, her son Eugène inherited the property, but his widow sold the estate to the Swedish banker Jonas Hagerman in 1828. In 1842, Queen Christina of Spain acquired it as a residence and later transferred it to Napoleon III. The war-damaged estate was sold by the state to Daniel Iffla in 1896. The wealthy patron of the site arranged it with the help of the architect Pierre Humbert and bequeathed it to the French state in 1904.
What to see at the Castle of Malmaison
The Castle of Malmaison, now a national museum, is one of the major attractions of the Hauts-de-Seine department. It is classified as a Historical Monument, and its park is recognized as a Remarkable Garden. The Malmaison house is one of the rare examples of a consular palace from the period that retains its authenticity. Upon crossing the threshold, visitors gradually enter the intimate world of the castle's illustrious occupants. The collection is rich, with exquisite armchairs in precious wood draped in red, the luxurious tea service of Empress Josephine, the piano of Queen Hortense, and the paintings that adorn the walls, as well as the furniture and other private collections of the Emperor. The exterior is enhanced by the ornamental plants, a reflection of Madame Bonaparte's passion and her nickname as the "Empress of Roses."
The Louis Vuitton Foundation
The Louis Vuitton Foundation is a center for the promotion of art and culture created by the LVMH group. Its construction was motivated by Bernard Arnault's commitment to patronage and his luxury goods houses. Designed by the architect Frank Gehry, it is a modern building that showcases Gehry's architectural brilliance. Gehry, a Pritzker Prize winner known for his iconic designs such as the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall, has created another masterpiece with the Louis Vuitton Foundation. The Foundation is located in the heart of the Jardin d'Acclimatation, on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne at 8 Avenue Mahatma Gandhi. It stands out as a stunning architectural gem, resembling a sailboat made of glass navigating through a sea of green parkland. The auditorium has seating for 350 people and standing space for 1000 people. The interior spans 4,000 m², and the project involved the collaboration of 3,000 individuals. One of the remarkable features of the building is a 200-meter-long and 3-meter-thick concrete slab that serves as the foundation. The steel hulls of the exhibition halls are covered with Ductal, a white concrete with a smooth texture. The 13,500 m² of glass panels were manufactured in Italy and assembled in the Czech Republic. The larch wood beams used in the construction were sourced from the Black Forest and prepared in Austria. The museum floor is adorned with Burgundy stone.
What to see at the Louis Vuitton Foundation

The Mont Valérien Memorial
Presentation and History
Mont Valérien is a hill located in the Hauts-de-Seine department, spanning three communes: Suresnes, Nanterre, and Rueil-Malmaison. It is situated just two kilometers west of Paris and reaches a height of 162 meters. The hill is renowned for the eponymous fortress, and to the south of it stands the Mont Valérien Memorial, dedicated to all the fallen heroes of World War II. The fortress itself is a pentagonal fortification that was constructed between 1840 and 1846 during the reign of Louis-Philippe. Prior to the construction of the fortress, the mountain was a popular pilgrimage site. In the 17th century, the priests of the Calvary established a presence there until their congregation was permanently suppressed in 1791. In 1800, Napoleon ordered the demolition of the church and convent due to suspicions of secret meetings against him. In 1812, Napoleon entrusted the architect Nicolas Jacques Antoine Vestier with the construction of buildings that would serve as an educational institution for young girls affiliated with the Legion of Honor. In 1816, the Society of the Missions of France obtained permission from Louis XVIII to settle in these buildings. In 1824, the priests of this mission opened a cemetery on the site. It was Louis-Philippe who integrated Mont Valérien into the network of fortifications surrounding Paris.
What to see at Mont Valérien
During the Second World War, the German authorities used the fortress as a primary execution site, where over a thousand hostages and resistance fighters were killed. The Mont Valérien Memorial pays tribute to these men and women. Since 1946, a ceremony of the Order of the Liberation has been held at the site on June 18th each year. In 1958, President General de Gaulle ordered the construction of a monument. The monument consists of a 150-meter-long pink sandstone wall from the Vosges region, featuring a 12-meter-high Cross of Lorraine and a crypt with 17 vaults, where the remains of 16 fighters rest.
