La maison de Madame Elisabeth

This is Madame Elisabeth's house. It is set in a lush, green garden, I just love the place! It was built in the 1770s by the prince and princess of Rohan-Guéméné and bought by Louis XVI who gave it to his sister in 1783.

Voici la maison de Madame Elisabeth. Elle se trouve dans un écrin de verdure absolument splendide, j'adore cet endroit ! Construit dans les années 1770 par le prince et la princesse de Rohan-Guéméné, le domaine fut acquis par Louis XVI qui le donna à sa sœur en 1783.

It looks wonderful and rather mysterious, as if there is a story attached.

It is so beautiful. Not sure I'd want to live in such a place but I'd like to visit and admire it. The royals of that day certainly did know how to live!
