Le Domaine de la Vallée aux Loups

Châtenay-Malabry boasts an estate with an unusual history. It has indeed become an iconic place in the life of Chateaubriand.


The Vallée-aux-Loups estate is one of three departmental museums in Hauts-de-Seine and rightly so as it belonged in 1807 to the famous writer Chateaubriand and his wife.

Chateaubriand kept embellishing this estate that was initially a gardener’s house. He enlarged the house and created 10.7 hectares of grounds. In the Arboretum, he even planted with his own hand some rare species found on his travels. He also built the Velléda Tower, in which he set up his office and library, and where he wrote his Memoirs from beyond the grave.

This estate now consists of several properties: 36 hectares of grounds, the Île Verte wild garden, the Maison de Chateaubriand and the Arboretum of 12.7 hectares. Everything is done to maintain and reproduce the atmosphere in which Chateaubriand lived for ten years. It also hosts all kinds of exhibitions (such as De Rubens à Delacroix and Portraits de l’époque romantique), workshops, conferences and romantic walks.
