Château de la Muette is a magnificent villa nestled on the tip of Bois de Boulogne. The manor site was formerly occupied by three mansions in the past. In the 16th Century, an old hunting chalet was converted into a chateau for King Henry II's beloved daughter, Princess Marguerite de Valois. Between the years 1606 and 1792, the estate remained in royal hands. In 1945, the manor became a significant military base for the Allied Powers. Today, it is used by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.
