A bucolic and relaxing setting on the outskirts of Paris
Published on 1 August 2023, dans Hotel
When you enter the 2-hectare park of Le Relais de la Malmaison, it's hard to imagine that you're only twenty minutes from the center of Paris and ten minutes from the La Défense business district. At Le Relais de la Malmaison hotel, you'll find everything you need to relax and unwind, to enjoy a relaxing interlude in a lush green setting...
An exceptional location
Nestled in an arm of the Seine, in a setting immortalized by the Impressionists, Le Relais de la Malmaison hotel adjoins the BlueGreen Golf Club in Rueil-Malmaison. It is thus at the heart of a bubble of greenery that invites you to take a stroll, all the way to the Ile des Impressionnistes park. The Relais itself boasts a two-hectare garden, planted with local varieties selected for their ability to capture hydrocarbons and purify the ambient air. Beehives have been installed here, and the bees produce honey that you can enjoy at breakfast and take home as a souvenir of your stay. Vast, open lawns and flower-filled groves invite you to relax and separate the different areas of the hotel: the main building with its restaurant and terrace, the Spa and indoor pool, and the Orangerie for private celebrations and business events. Of course, you'll be able to use these different areas at your own pace throughout your stay.

Looking for a getaway?
Would you like to take advantage of your stay at Relais de la Malmaison to explore the surrounding area? Nearby is the elegant Château de la Malmaison, given to Joséphine de Beauharnais by Napoleon when he was not yet emperor. It bears witness to the beginnings of the imperial adventure, but also to the cultural ferment of the time. Not far away, the Parc de Bois-Préau is a great place for a stroll.
