10 mins is all thats needed to cover this place from the inside. The outside garden and the village setup is more interesting but overall the place is like a quick stop in Versailles.

I think I enjoyed the Trianon's more than the palace because they were less crowded and just as beautiful. The hamlet provided some lovely photo opportunities and the Trianon's offered more of a down to earth/real life perspective of the time period with kitchens and bathrooms shown, rather than just fancy rooms.

We visited Versailles on a recent visit to Paris and had been advised to make sure to go to the Grand and Petit Trianons while at the palace - we were so glad that we did! They are in their own right lovely stately homes, similar to many back in Britain, both in size and style. However, the history behind... More

Many people don't visit the Trianons and The Hamlet because they either don't have time (especially if on a guided tour) or don't know about them. I honestly had never heard of them until starting my research for my trip to France. You will need to give yourself a good 3-4 hours to do these areas justice. Booking an overnight... More

We really enjoyed Marie Antoinette's Grand & Petit Palaces and gardens. her gardens had more flowers than the Chateau planted in the English way. It is a long walk back to the Hamlet and not well marked, but well worth it. Marie had all these house built to resemble an English hamlet including a working farm. It is very peaceful... More

We preferred the Trianons , although not looked after as much as the Palace there are not so many people about and it has a calm and peaceful setting, with a lovely bouquet of roses in the air. No food or drink here but it is a good price down by the canal

We paid 10€ each to see the hamlet and the trianons. The houses were beautiful and the gardens were perfect. Fresh air and long walks. Wished we brought some food and had a picnic.

Part of the Chateau. You'll be impressed with how much grandeur, funds and architecture designs were put in this structure. I don't mind living in one of these.

Most people spend their time at the main castle and miss the enchanting Hamlet and Trianon. It was a nice walk, even though it was raining. We loved The Hamlet. It was magical.
