La Roche-Guyon is a Seine River cruise port and village with a famous Chateau located in France's Val-d'Oise department (Ile-de-France region) with a population of under 1,000. The village developed around the 12th-century built castle Chateau de La Roche-Guyon.

The Chateau (manor house/fortress/lord's residence) was built to control a crossing over Seine River - one of the main trade routes for accessing France's Normandy region. The small fortress (overlooking the chateau-bas) has moat and towers and was constructed at the summit of a steep promontory (raised landmass) being hollowed out of a cliff. The fortified manor house below was built in the mid-13th-century. Major changes to the original building were made in the 17th-century, including opening new windows and adding the eastern terrace (by partly cutting into the mountain's slope). In the 18th-century, Chateau's size was largely extended by adding two new buildings and the front potager/garden (with vegetable garden).

Chateau de La Roche-Guyon is currently owned by one of France's oldest remaining noble families - the House of La Rochefoucauld, dating back/coming from the House of Limoges/Lusignan (late-10th-century).

Arboretum de La Roche is a 12-hectares forest created in 1990 as part of the 309-hectares regional forest to the north of the village. This is a popular tourist attraction that is free of charge and opens daily. The arboretum (botanical/select forest) represents a "map" consisting of several different masses of select trees representing each of Ile-de-France region's départements - including Essonne (maples), Hauts-de-Seine (limes and laurels), Seine-et-Marne (oak, dogwood, eucalyptus, blackberry, buckthorn), Yvelines (beech). At the arboretum, the region's rivers are strips of lawn.
