I don't advocate skipping the Château, but there's no harm in hustling through to the real treat: the Trianons and Hamlet. The crowds will thin out and you are treated to an incredible replica of an Austrian village and the two Trianons. My wife and I meandered through this area without seeing another traveler for several minutes at a time.

You'd think the Palace would be the main event, but I also enjoyed touring the Trianons. They have a totally different feel. There were less crowds and it seemed like quaint homes. I enjoyed the Petite Trianon better than the Grand Trianon. We didn't make it to the Hamlet, but we'd started the day at 10am at the Palace and... More

When all the luxury got to the royals they came up with a great concept and built themselves a couple of holiday houses on the estate - about 1.5 km walk from the main Chateau. These were called the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon. They were beautiful and due to the walk, essentially peaceful because the main scrums in the... More

This was by far my favorite part of Versailles. Absolutely beautiful, and so peaceful. It is quite a contrast from the grand chateau, and well worth spending the extra time to visit. Do not miss if you are visiting Versailles!

We rented golf carts to access the grounds efficiently. It was fun and easy to explore further from the palace. The Petit Trinton is easy to tour through in twenty minutes although you could stay longer. Marie s hamlet is amazing. Don't skip this part of the grounds. None of us had any idea of how extensive the hamlet was.... More

The Domaine de Marie Antoinette is located in the north east corner of the gardens of Versailles and includes the Trianons and the Hamlet. The Grand Trianon was built by Hardouin-Mansart as a personal retreat for Loius XIV in 1687. Fabulous salons, bedrooms, drawing rooms and formal French Gardens are open for visits. The Petite Trianon was built between 1762-1768... More

We spent hours walking around the gardens, through the Trianons and Hamlet. Very charming and beautiful scenery. Give yourself a whole day at Versailles just to take everything in.

If you are going all the way out to Versailles anyway, why not see all it has to offer? These buildings are beautiful, if not as stunningly grand, as the main palace. The history is so very interesting too. You can walk, rent a bike, or rent a golf cart to get around, so make the most of it and... More

What a beautiful thing to see! The history is unbelievable and it's truly spectacular to see how such a place has been preserved. This was the highlight of the day for my daughters (4 and 7) and I think for me as well. Don't miss it!

Walking through these halls, I can only imagine how it was like when France did have a King and Queen. This kind of luxury really open up my eyes to how splendid your life can be with the right amount of money and imagination.
