The hamlet built by Marie Antoinette was by far my favorite part of our trip to Versailles. The garden embraces nature more than the carefully manicured gardens of Versailles. It's absolutely adorable and the perfect place for a picnic. You can wander in the trees, take a break at the pond full of fish and birds, or walk through the... More

Tucked away within the palace estate the trianons & the hamlet add a special touch to the visit. Lovely gardens, fountains, walks and places to eat along the way.

Located beyond the gardens it is a long but pleasant walk or you can stand in another line and pay E7.5 to take the small train. Either way ithe two Trianons and the Hamlet are very interesting and also have their own formal gardens. Food, gift shop and restrooms available here too. Admission is included with the Paris Museum Pass.

It takes a while to get there, but the trip is well worth it. Keep in mind that it will be quieter since it is not easy to reach. Do not miss this!

Probably my favourite part of Versailles. The Petit Trianon is very quaint, yet full of detail, and the surroundings and area of the Trianon's were very peaceful.

The two Trianons are worth to visit, and the Hamlet as well. The best way to get on the little train, there are a lot of them. It is much more tranquill there than in the palace, less people.

There is something rediculous about this place in a way it is as overly constructed and false as Versailles but that is not necessarily a bad thing. In the end it was my favorite part of my visit to Versailles. As other mentioned it is human scale but it is also an attempt to create a real life in the... More

Of course Versailles is breathtaking and stunning and ridiculous in scale, but the Grand Trianon is far more personable, reasonable and believable.There was more space even on a visit mid July than there was in the far larger main Chateau, it was peaceful and sedate and you could imagine living there. A welcome breather.

I missed the Hamlet on my first visit to Versailles and was happy to fix that mistake on my recent trip. We loved the Hamlet area. It is a 30 minute or so walk from the main chateau but worth it. You can also get the tram, ride bikes, or use a golf cart to get to the Trianon/Hamlet area... More

Walking the grounds where Marie Antoinette decided to play to get away from court life…girl….Marie Antoinette knew what she was doing with her hamlet. My husband wasn't prepared for a day of walking - you can get a bike, rent a golf cart (its expensive) or take a tram (cheap but gets packed fast). Tips buy a museum pass -... More
