Rochefort en Yvelines is a remarkable village in the south of Ile de France,located in the Parc de la Haute Vallee de Chevreuse, 45 kms from Paris, Versailles and Chartres.
Stately old city, it lies at the foot of a wooded hill where there are fewremains of the castle fort built in the eleventh century by the Seneschal The Red Guy.
A former bailiwick, now converted into a town hall, old houses with porch sometimes surmounted by a crest, paved streets, a church overlooking the village and has retained its old cemetery where are buried the princes of Rohan, are all testimonies of the feudal past of Rochefort.

A second castle was built by Hercules de Rohan in the sixteenth century, was destroyed and rebuilt to give the current castle called "Louis XIII".
Another castle, built for the financier Jules Porges in 1899, located in the Gulf of Rochefort is a greatly enlarged replica of the Palace of the Legion of Honor in Paris.
The natural, cultural and leisure Rochefort make it a very attractive village on the outskirts of the capital.
