While everyone else is jammed in the Palace ride the tram to see the Trianons and Hamlet. Unlike the formal gardens this feels like a natural setting. The variety of trees and plants is fantastic. The hamlet reminds me of wj=hat Disney might have done. It is particularly beautiful in fall colors.

After seeing the top gardens and the palace, your feet may be tired and you may think you've seen it all, but you haven't. My favorite place on the grounds of Versaille was the Queen's Hamlet. A little village built by the Queen to allow her to play "peasant" with her teenage girlfriends, it is a full on little village with goats, chickens, houses, a mill, gardens, etc. Very quaint, if not proof of the insousance of Marie-Antoinette's "let them eat cake" attitude. The walk around between the Trianon and the Hamlet is beautiful, especially on an October day, which is when I visited. Take the mini train - it's about 4 euros round trip and worth having the chance to rest your feet and entertain your eyes while you travel to and from the back side of the Versaille property.

My wife and I spent the afternoon at Le Grand and Petit Trianons and Le Hameau of Marie Antoinette after going through the Chateau de Versailles that morning. We strolled along the Grand Canal and through the gardens on our walk to the Trianons. We stopped and got a wrap for lunch and lingered as we look it all in.

The walk to the Trianons was 45 minutes to an hour. These smaller palaces were built to accommodate the king and queen with their own private palaces away from the public palace of Versailles. You can understand why this display of affluent luxury eventually led to the French Revolution.

I especially enjoyed the simplicity of the hamlet of Marie Antoinette. All we could do was wander around the structures. We could not enter any of them, except the one that has been converted into a restroom and small visitor center. By the time we finished looking around the hamlet we decided to ride the tram back to the chateau. I'm glad we devoted a full day for Versailles. Any less would probably be a waste.

The Hamlet is well worth visiting. Quite a walk from Versailles chateau, but you can take the small road train.

Situated behind the Chateau of Versailles, the Grand Trianon, Petit Trianon & the Hamlet are worthy attractions of their own. It's a good walk to get there, but very picturesque in process. You can even be dropped off here & picked up later - your choice. The Trianons were entertainment edifices for the king. The Hamlet is the Marie Antoinette "model farm" so that she could feel closer to the French populace - you decide. It's beautiful, charming & not to be missed. ...
