Peace and quiet.

After the carnival of the palace this charming house gives you room to breathe. You can wander around and enjoy the rooms.

We were lucky enough to visit on a sunny autumn day and decided to walk out. This took 25-30 mins but there is a shuttle bus/train from town if you don't fancy the walk. Once there it is a mix of impressive architecture and beautiful gardens, and an interesting insight into Versailles history. Would recommend to those who want a... More

Wonderful fairy tale place with extensive gardens and beautiful buildings. The hamlet is gorgeous and the wandering trails through the landscape worth a walk.

You certainly can't call these cottages, but then maybe to the Kings, it is a bit of a step down. These were the houses where the king went to try to live like peasants. Even these are opulent. Fun to see.

Absolutely not worth a visit, a huge walk (or transportation) is needed to get there, practcally for nothing. Rather spend more time in the garden close to the chateau

The trolley does not goto the hamlet, you cannot got in the buildings at the Hamlet and there are not signs how to get to them so people get lost getting to and from them hamlet.

It is spectacular at the Hamlet. You can walk about 15-20 minutes from the palace (or rent a bike/cart/or take a shuttle if you are unable to walk). It is beautiful out here and there are also some farm animals which are great for the kids to look at.

The village itself is mildly interesting, but my wife and I strayed off the main path while viewing one of the farms. We stumbled through several trails, meeting several likewise lost visitors along the way. Considering the walk to get there and the lack of signage, in retrospect I think this park of the Versailles visit could be skipped unless... More

Don't get the appeal. Very plain buildings and interiors compared to the main palace and other chateau we have seen. Didn't get to the Hamlet as it was too far to walk and we wanted to see the gardens.

We were here during the rain but it is just beautiful. A little far from the castle but you can always take a bike, shuttle or golf cart to get there. Not to be missed!
