Bought by Josephine Bonaparte in 1799, it was the home of the First Consul and his wife and the seat of the French government, along with the Tuileries, from 1800 to 1802.

The Royal Chateau of Fontainebleau (in the Seine-et-Marne d partement), the largest of the French royal chateaux, introduced to France the Italian Mannerist style in interior decoration and in gardens, and transformed them in the translation.
The Salle des Fetes, in the reign of Henri II, was decorated by the Italian Mannerist painters, Francesco Primaticcio and Niccolo dell’ Abbate.
Nevertheless, with a decade Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, began to transform the Chateau de Fontainebleau into a symbol of his grandeur, as an alternative to empty Versailles, with its Bourbon connotations.

The name of Malmaison came from the Normans who invaded France in the middle ages -- it literally means "bad house," and it probably was when it was first built.
The former medieval castle of Malmaison no longer exists, and most of what is now standing was built in the 18th century.
During the French Revolution of 1789, the rich families who owned Malmaison were forced to sell it to Joséphine Bonaparte, wife of Napoleon, First Consul, for the equivalent of 45,000 euros, a real fortune at this time.

I enjoyed the chateau and even in peak summer season, there were only a couple people in the place, so it is not crowded.
I think the stop itself is named "chateau" and you have to pay attention to the names on the bus stops as you pass and get off at the right one--notice when you are at the one before that point and be ready to get off the next one.
The road is "avenue du chateau de Malmaison".

 Magazine Antiques: Josephine as patroness of the arts - Empress of France's patronage civilized her husband's court
The refurbishing of Malmaison was achieved under Josephine's close supervision, according to Napoleon's valet, Constant Wairy (1788-1848), (3) and it is the house most identified with her.
This small chateau just outside Paris provided a place where she could relax with Bonaparte (as she always called him) and her two children, Eugene de Beauharnais (1781-1824) and Hortense (Pl. VIII), both of whom Napoleon adopted.
The focus of this article is Josephine's personal collection of paintings and sculpture, but it should be remembered that her patronage in every realm was distinguished by unusually sound instincts and was extended to the foremost artists and artisans in their fields.

The architects, who had studied in Rome between 1786 and 1790, went on to publish books of drawings that were used by cabinetmakers and bronze craftsmen to create detailed reproductions of the new decorative motifs.
Now, he also offers French Art Deco and mid-century classics, “designs from the ’40s and ’50s, all very fashionable now, that were influenced by the modern lines of Empire furniture.” Empire, however, still occupies a special place in his heart and, he believes, in the history of decorative arts.
