The Trianons & The Hamlet, Versailles

#2 of 23 in Historic Sites in Versailles
Architectural Building · Castle
Take a peek into Marie Antoinette’s favorite places to get away from the pomp of Versailles at The Trianons & The Hamlet. Walk across the gardens or ride the petit train to reach the Grand Trianon decked out in pink marble. The Petit Trianon and the surrounding park reflect the queen's eclectic, free-thinking nature through their rural, rustic surroundings. Inside The Petit Trianon, see her modest bedchamber and simple furnishings. At Le Hameau (Hamlet), survey the ill-fated queen's retreat overlooking Grand Trianon Lake, where the environment stands in stark contrast to the formal gardens at Versailles.

  • For me Trianons' garden was much more interesting than Versailles' park. Human sized and natural with small meandering paths instead of geometrical vast boulevards of Versailles. Tiny little details.....  more »
  • It is the queen's palace and very well designed. Les crowded so you can enjoy your time better. The garden is really nice, specially in good weather.  more »
  • Nice visit, great garden
  • Loved this "little" house but the opulence and inequalities it shows are shocking
