Quite a walk from the main Chateau but none the less impressive. Gardens were lovely and the views were stunning. Well worth the 1.5km walk from the main Chateau to go and visit

Marie-Antoinette's little farm hideaway is a peaceful haven among the grandeur of the formal gardens. The grounds are beautifully tended and there are several benches where you can lull as long as you like to soak up the calm. No wonder M-A liked to come here - a peaceful retreat away from the Rococo and raucous of the Chateau...

You're truly missing out if you skip this area during your visit to Versailles. After dealing with the crowds at the palace we rented bicycles and made our way here. Marie Antoinette hated all the pomp and circumstance in the main palace so she created this whole little village for herself to feel more like a commoner. The Hamlet is... More

Well worth a visit after the crowds of the Chateau. I think the tour parties miss this, and the calm scenic setting makes it worth the walk. If you have children, the farm will give them something to enjoy too.

Very pleasant place to wander round. After visiting the Palace, this is so much more enjoyable. There were still many visitors when we were there, but nothing like the crowds of tour buses at the Palace. All very beautiful and well worth spending an afternoon to walk around the grounds

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.
