We really enjoyed touring the smaller chateaux on the grounds as well as the little farm hamlet. Our 7-year-old son liked seeing the various farm animals and river rats. These areas were much less crowded than the main palace.

Enjoyed this much more than the Chateau de Versailles. This is more about the Royal family on a private scale. I highly recommend it. Only disappointment was not being able to enter any of the buildings in the Queen's Hamlet (appear to be undergoing restoration.

I went here with my toddler son, brother and his partner. We arrived around 10.30am which was peak time for ticketing and from what i could tell you could book tickets in advance and save a lot of waiting around so i would suggest doing that if you can. I had to leave the pram in storage after going through... More

If I were king I too would have a getaway like these. The landscape design was amazing and it was fun to slowly walk the lovely paths. The queen's hamlet was right out of a storybook. What a pleasure it was to behold. Don't miss it.

It's quite a walk from the palace so keep that in mind :) I also recommend that you buy a museum pass once you get to Paris or a surrounding area. This will get you into the palace and Marie Antoinette's estate. It will not get you into the gardens which costs 9€ to get into.

I think I enjoyed this area of Versailles more than the palace as I wasn't sure what to expect. The trianons and gardens are beautiful, less busy and so quite peaceful. The farm is quite astounding as it is a perfect replica of a small hamlet and still has animals in the grounds. We enjoyed the pigs and white chickens!... More

When you visit Versailles, make time to head over to the Queen's Hamlet. There you will find a smaller palace, a smaller set of gardens, the Temple of Love, and a small village commissioned by Marie Antoinette. This part of the Versailles is far less crowded, very peaceful and very beautiful. Highly recommended! If you have a Museum pass, you... More

Unless you spend several days at Versailles Chateau, you will not see it all and you may well miss the best parts. We have been to Versailles several times and are here again in September 2014. The Trianons are a long walk from the Chateau, however the walk is worth the effort. On this visit to Paris we are spending... More

Love the Hamlet, the simplicity of the place and in a way you get another side of the royal life. The Trianons are beautiful and not to mention less crowded than the main Palace. The gardens of The Petit Trianon are small but lovely.
