Great gardens to walk through. So many varieties of plants and tress. The buildings themselves are good but after the Chateau I suppose look quite ordinary.

The Trianons are okay, but the gardens and park around them is lovely and we really liked the Hameau, so peaceful and quaint. I definitely recommend exploring the area.

This is a much quieter area of the chateau, 30 mins walk or you can go by petit train or hire a bike or buggy. Don't miss it.

With the attention surrounding the main palace at Versailles, it is easy to miss the underrated sights that are the Grand Trianon and the Petit Trianon. The Grand Trianon boasts elegant and tasteful interiors which provide a nice contrast to the imposing ones in the main palace, and even rival them in their own way. It was also the model... More

You must visit the grand Trianon and petit Trianon which although far from the main palace they are still on the estate grounds. The king had this built to get away from the main palace also hide his love affair. Although a small palace by comparison it had all the refinements of the main palace. The gardens complimented the building... More

Do the main Palace one day and the little Hamlet first thing in the morning the next day - get there before anyone else and wander around, it's lovely - like a Hobbit village! The Triannons were OK but we were "Palace'd out" by then and they were quite crowded inside as we had got there in the middle of... More

No wonder Queen Marie-Antoinette created that place as a refuge to escape the Royal Court's habits. Nice views and wide selection of trees and flowers from around the world. A village recreated!

A bit of sanity amidst the hugeness and formalness of Versailles. Poor deluded Marie-Antoinette.... the Hamlet included farm animals
