Château de Malmaison
Joséphine de Beauharnais bought the manor house in 1799 with 150 acres of woods and would call it "a delicious spot". Birds and animals of all sorts began to enrich the garden, where they were allowed to roam free among the grounds. After her divorce from Napoléon, Joséphine received Malmaison and remained there until her death in 1814. Napoléon returned and took residence in the house after his defeat at the Battle of Waterloo.
