Love in Versailles!
Sep 2019
The Grand Trianon is a French Baroque style château situated in Versailles castle area. It was built as a retreat for Louis XIV and his lover, the Marquise de Montespan. When there, Louis was way more relaxed with guests and strict court étiquette.

wonderful walk
May 2019
after spending hours (literally) in the Palace it was wonderful to stretch our legs and take the walk to the Grand Trianon (and its gardens). If we hadn't been to the Palace we would have been in awe of the Grand Trianon - its fine marble, wide open rooms, opulent furniture and prestine gardens BUT everything does pale against the main palace. Detinitely worth the visit though.

Extensive use of marble

Each room was unique and some were quite vivid, it's a long walk from the main gate but was worth the effort.

Great place inside Versailles

Great little place to see while inside Versailles

Be advised that, if you come from the Castle's main entrance it's A LONG walk to get there. Be sure to take your time if you really want to come looking for this

Surprizing

It's a long long walk from the palace but you must squeeze it in. Surprising in its architectural form it's nicely laid out and furnished giving a superb reflection of their lives. It was worth the walk

A beautiful gem of a building - an antidote to Versailles Palace!
Oct 2019
The Grand Trianon is a lovely looking building (very pretty) - low, not so ostentatious and much more 'domestic' in scale, for all that it is still a palace!
The rooms were very attractively (and expensively) furnished, as befits the occupants and its use, with a colourful and interesting range of furniture, furnishings, artworks and craftsmanship.
Although distant from the main chateau at Versailles, it is really worth the distance and the effort (go on the train!!)

Should be visited.
May 2019 • Solo
Le Grand Trianon is one of the wonderful parts of what Versailles has to offer. It is a small palace and much less opulent then the main palace. It also has much fewer visitors. Yet, it does have some good features. It feels more like a part of the gardens.

Enjoyed and well worth exploring!

Pretty

A lovely little palace, far more relaxed and feminine than the main palace. You can take a little train to here from the main palace, it's worth a visit and is included in the entry ticket to the main palace.
