Situated 8 kilometres west of Paris, in the Hauts de Seine Département, Rueil-Malmaison is a town of 77 000 inhabitants, whose 1472 hectares slope gently from the heights of Mont Valérien ant the Buzenval hills to the banks of the Seine to the north.
Once a country village, known for its market gardens and famous for the purity of its waters, Rueil-Malmaison has developed into a busy modern town, the headquarters of a number of major companies and agencies.
It has nonethless retained its quiet residential neighbourhoods, its places of interest and its flower filled parks, making it a harmonious green town on a human scale.
