Rambouillet is situated to the south-west of Paris in a very green area which forms part of Yvelines. Versailles is in this part of Ile-de-France and the area is characterised by vast swathes of forest; the town itself is situated on the edge of Rambouillet Forest. The major landmark of the town has to be the fairy-tale Chateau of Rambouillet, alluding to the areas importance in matters of state.
As a brand name, Rambouillet is perhaps most famous for its breed of sheep, but in tourist terms it's a beautiful hideaway just 56km outside of Paris. The Chateau of Rambouillet gets a lot of tourism and the woodland setting of the town promotes its family friendly credentials. If you're hiring a car in Rambouillet, Versailles Palace is just 32km north-west on the N10, along with attractions like the Royal Opera and the Temple of Love. St-Germain-en-Laye is a shade further north, where you can see the enchanting Chateau, and Alexandre Dumas house for literary buffs. Rent a car in Rambouillet and see the green and stately south-western aspect of Ile-de-France.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
