I didn't attempt to go into the main Palace as the queues were horrific, so thought the Trianons and Le Hameau would make up for it, but was sadly disappointed. The sheer number of people milling around spoilt it for me. In truth, I wasn't particularly impressed by what was inside either.

Once you get through the impenetrable crowds in the chateau, take this little escape beyond the gardens, on the far side of the Grand Canal. In the Trianons and Le Hameau, you'll find much more freedom in where you go and what you see, MANY fewer people, and a different side of the luxury afforded to the Golden Age royals... More

Le Hameau is delightful. While the palace is beautiful on a grand scale, the quaint buildings of the hamlet have their own charm. Absolutely beautiful and well worth the walk to reach them.

Le Hameau was a wonderful visit. It's just a stroll, you don't "do" anything there. Read up what it is before you go. There are awesome fish in the ponds the poke their heads up and gape at you. Kids get a kick out of that.

To see a part of French aristocracy and history, it's worth the wait. One of our favorite attractions. I actually enjoyed the long walk in the gardens. There was a nice outdoor restaurant serving pastas, not sure if its still there.

The property and the history behind the estate and surrounding property is magnificent. What really turned us off was the unorganized lines snaking all over the entrance. You would think after years of trial and error that they would have figured out a more efficient method to the madness. Also, the rooms and tours once in the palace were overly... More

Lovely and lots to do. Be careful visiting on a Tuesday as Paris museums are shut so everyone travels out to Versailles.

The Trianons were small palaces themselves, sadly we only saw a few rooms but the grounds and outbuildings were fabulous.

We queued for hours to get into the Palace and this part was the best for me. Get the train down or back and walk just the one way. It was all that I had hoped for.
