“A good walk from Chateau de Versailles”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

If you plan of spending the whole day at Chateau de Versailles, then talk a long lingering walk through the extensive gardens down the slope and visit The Trianons & The Hamlet. Small interesting buildings in Marie Antoinette's area of the estate. Queues are very short and you get to see the more "relaxed" life of the inhabitants of the property.

If you can't face anymore walking after visiting here, you can pick up the Chateau mini-train right out the front and be taken back up to the palace. There is a small Angelina's cafe for a snack and coffee break where you can sit outside the Hamlet and enjoy the country air and sunlight!

I've only rated this as average, because after visiting the palace first I think i ended up succumbing to history overload and couldn't look at period furniture anymore, but if you're an avid fan of the era then you will certainly enjoy this part of the Chateau de Versailles estate.

“A must see in you visit Versailles”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

After the golds and the grandeur of the Versailles Palace, the Trianon and the Hamlet are charming and quiet places. Nice walk through the gardens will bring you back to Marie-Antoinette's dream world.

“The true palace of the seventeenth century!”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

It's so grand, charming and amazing! Must visit if you have one day free time from Paris! Take RER to Versailles, it's only 30 minutes.
Explore the palace and the garden (beware the garden is sooo big!) bring umbrella also.
TIPS: Bring some packed picnic lunch to have a picnic in the garden. So romantic. =)

“Enchanting! Don't miss it.”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We did the entire tour but the gardens and The Hamlet were our favorite sights. Make sure you take the train to the Trianons and the Hamlet after touring the palace and if you think you'll run out of steam soon, visit the Hamlet first.The Hamlet looks like it has been taken out of a fairy tale, simply beautiful, with adorable animals. Both Trianons are lovely, but if you like nature, get off the train at the Grand Trianon and walk to the Petit one and the Hamlet, the smell and colors of the trees, flowers and grass are amazing. You can definitely tell the whole state was designed for kings.

“Again disapointed”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

As my Versialle review, I was disappointed with the whole experience and queues and crowds. I like the kitchens though.
