Who doesn't like getting away to the country? Not Marie Antoinette, that's for sure. Such gorgeous rustic scenes only a trolley ride away from the bustling and gilt opulence of the Palace, you can imagine th e delight and sigh of relief one must have encountered upon arriving for a spot of fresh air and goat milking. You can see... More

I enjoyed visiting this aspect of Versailles as it was away from the huge crowds of people in the centre of the Chateau yet it was still fascinating to get this insight into French history.

A lovely peaceful enclave away from the thronging masses in the palace of Versailles. Beautiful gardens and buildings and probably good for kids who might get bored/squashed in Versailles.

I have visited Versailles twice and this was the first time I got to go to the hamlet and the grand and petite trianon. I have to say that the hamlet was my favorite of the entire estate. As many have said, it is like a little fairy tale village complete with animals, grist mill and a lookout tower. I... More

Versailles takes a whole day to appreciate. The Chateau is amazing and certainly a must-see, but I really like the grounds much better. While I could never see myself actually living at the Chateau, the Trianons and the Hamlet feel almost homey. I can picture real people in these places. They are much more intimate, and the grounds are beautiful... More

Such a fairytale!! Hire bikes early near the grand canal and cycle to Le Hameau and around the palace grounds - areas at entrance of each attraction to lock up bikes. Use the Paris Museum pass to get entry or pay at the door.

After touring the Palace I walked over to the Hamlet.It was like walking through a park, quiet and serene. Beautiful scenery as I passed the Gazeebo and admired it's detailed carvings. I follwed a stream in which a white swan led me to the Hamlet. Very quaint and original. It was typical of french homes for the time just as... More

I have friends who have skipped this section and I'm so glad we didn’t. If you're pressed for time, make the Estate your next priority after the main palace (as the Trianons are more similar to the palace). It's not a very long walk to get there (about 10-15 minutes and the walk is very scenic) and is so peaceful.... More

Worth the visit, we took the petit train down to visit these two attractions (feet were walked off us at this stage)

Well worth the visit to totally understand the dynamics of this incredible establishment. Make sure you have your walking shoes and the camera is fully charged.
