Time seems to have stopped in Empress Josephine's drawing room. The present owners, Count Stefan Czarnecki and his mother, take tea surrounded by the past. The house, which is one of the Hauts de Seine's two national monuments, vies with the ominous high rise buildings springing up around it. Upkeep is expensive, and the family struggles on a day to day basis to keep the house and grounds in good repair and maintain this oasis of peace and beauty. La Petite Malmaison, Rueil-Malmaison, Hauts de Seine, France.
