The days are slowly but steadily getting shorter, and the cool morning air reminds us that autumn has set in. What if you took advantage of the All Saints' Day holidays to decompress and let go ? This is the perfect time to break the routine, relax and recharge your batteries in Rueil. We give you 5 good reasons to discover Rueil in autumn, a charming provincial town at the gates of Paris.




1) Admire the seasonal colors

Yellows, browns, oranges, reds... gradually between September and November, the trees are adorned with leaves in flamboyant colors and the sun is often present. We are charmed by these beautiful golden hues, the sound of the leaves under our feet and the orange light at the end of the afternoon... Nature offers a spectacle that has nothing to envy to other seasons.


Marvel at this magnificent rainbow of colors, a nice consolation prize for recovering from the end of summer. Autumn is a season that offers beautiful warm colors. This majestic atmosphere is a real boon to the eyes.


2) Discover Château life

Think of yourself as a lord for a week-end and immerse yourself in the days of the Empire by visiting the charming domain of Malmaison ! Walk the paths of the copper-hued garden, walk through the corridors of the palace, take the time to admire the sublime collection of antiques... You will enter a little into the mind of the strategist and you will penetrate the hearts of the imperial couple. Let yourself be surprised by the tranquility that reigns in the beautiful mansion of Napoleon and Joséphine !


Extend your visit by discovering the secret garden of the Empress, the Château de la Petite Malmaison. Considered to be the equivalent of Marie-Antoinette's Trianon at Versailles, the Petite Malmaison is an intimate residence where Joséphine will give free rein to her passion for botany. She received her guests there for a cup of tea after visiting the greenhouses. Even though the greenhouse no longer exists today, you can still feel the exquisite atmosphere that reigned there in the days of the Empire.


3) Change of scenery in Rueil

Who said you have to go far to get away from it all ? Sometimes a stroll in the zen garden is enough to change the atmosphere ! In the heart of Rueil-Malmaison, this park is a haven of peace offering a setting conducive to meditation in a superb Japanese garden.


A hike on the banks of the Seine will immerse you in a time bubble, that of the “Belle Époque”. Discover the “Petit Giverny” of Rueil for an exotic journey in the footsteps of impressionist painters ! Situated on the banks of Seine, this park, straight out of an Impressionist painting, is a tribute to Claude Monet's garden in Giverny. Sensitivity and sensuality blend nicely in this mecca of the Impressionist movement. Impossible not to succumb to the charm of these picturesque landscapes !
