The Trianons, frequent residences of Marie-Antoinette, royal mistresses, or other notable figures, are small palatial buildings worthy of visits themselves, but a stroll further afield from the Petit Trianon, one finds the Queen's Hamlet, a Disney-esque village created for Marie-Antoinette to escape the strict court life of Versailles and "play peasant" on the farm. Many of the structures still exist... More

We bought the passport to explore Versailles which included the gardens and trianons not just the chateau. Visited in June 2012 & September 2013. Each time had good weather for our day there from Paris. Trianons were for King Louis xiv and Marie Antoinette aside from the chateau. They are immaculately decorated with the most luxurious furnishings and artwork. The... More

We bought the passport ticket online which includes entry into versaille aswell as the trianons. The trianons are lovely to see. The pink marble exterior is lovely. Worth a visit if you have time while in versaille.

The hamlet is my favorite place within the grounds of Versailles. There is something to a small village within a massive estate with a simple lifestyle that gets me.

My husband and I really enjoyed our walk through the Trianons & Hamlet. It was nice to be away from the crowds a little. Much more peaceful. We had a lovely time and it is definitely not to be missed.

Somewhat underwhelming if you come here after visiting the palace - but worth the trip. The gardens and the residence has a different feel to it. Must more intimate and delicate than the palace!

There's a lot of ground to cover. I highly recommend splurging on the little train that takes you around.

We spent about 4 hours in the Palace prior to heading the the Trianons. We inquired about the mini train but they charged 7,50 euros per person (even for my 11 y/o) so we decided to walk. So glad we did, we were able to snack along the way, explore the gardens and take in the beautiful views. Marie Antoinette's... More

The main Château was so overly crowded, that we almost enjoyed the Trianon and grounds even more because it was relaxed and not crowded. The furnishings, gardens and architecture are not to be missed. Definitely pick up a self-guided audio tour so you understand what you are seeing!

Do not pass on this it is beautiful and worth the walk or bike ride there! Even though it is packed with tourists you can feel how amazing it must have been to be living there long ago.
