“Delightful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Versailles. Vanessa is an absolutely delightful hostess, She is very attentive, and eager to be of assistance. We had some difficulty making the on-line deposit, but a phone call to her solved our problems.

The location is very central. Parking is provided on-site, and a car is not needed for your stay. The Chateau is only a 10- to 15-minute walk. The train station is a 10-minute walk, and you can take a train into Paris very easily. There are many shops, restaurants, cafes, and bakeries nearby.

Breakfast is delicious and quite satisfying. Eat outdoors on her patio if the weather is good, or inside if the weather is inclement. Vanessa is a pastry chef and baking classes can be arranged -- we took advantage of one, and really enjoyed it.

Our only concern about the Villa Versailles is, that while it is wonderful for a party of two adults, a third guest must sleep on a sofa-bed. The mattress was surprisingly comfortable, but there just isn't a lot of space for a party of more than two adults.

Vanessa does a wonderful job of maintaining this guest residence adjacent to her home. She brings lovely pastries from a local bakery in the morning as well as some of her own. She is a fantastic pastry chef and has wonderful creations. I took a brief cooking lesson with her, which was fantastic. It really added to my experience in Versailles and gave me something new to bring back home.

I highly recommend Villa Versailles. For me, the most significant features of a temporary home for the traveler is how well it allows one to relax and restore oneself overnight. In this service, Villa Versailles cannot be beat. The neighborhood is very quiet; absolutely silent late at night. The bed is incredibly comfortable. I love a nice hot bath and was not disappointed with the facilities: very modern, clean, the tub is deep and long. The inclusion of basic kitchen facilities expands ones options for evening repast. One can simply stay home after a busy day.
The rates are competitive, the host charming and kind and helpful, the facilities well kept. I very much appreciate this place. Everyday I could proceed with renewed strength. Wonderful.

Dear Paul
Thanks a lot for your comment.
It was a real pleasure having you and "sharing" in a way all the great things you have done in versailles.
What an experience meeting Versailles's famous gardener, Mr Baraton, having a tree for your friend and becoming a versailles's donator...
I hope your last day in paris, went good :)
I hope to have the chance to have you again at Villa Versailles
Take care
Vanessa

I cannot begin to express how wonderful this B&B was. From the moment we arrive till the moment we left we could not have been more pleased. Our hostess Vanessa was absolutely charming and made us feel so very welcomed and at home. The villa is a beautiful two story,living space with dinette and efficiency kitchen downstairs and a spacious bedroom and wonderfully modern bathroom upstairs. The villa not only looked clean but smelled fantastic. We were treated to a great breakfast in the morning. The Villa is in a great location, we walked to Versailles in less than 10 minutes. Our only regret was we were not able to stay longer. Do not pass up an opportunity to stay here !!

we spent 4 lovely days at villa versailles.
We chose villa versailles according to comments on tripadvisor and everything was TRUE !
The place is lovely, very central, close to the palace.
Decoration is simple, chic and confortable.
we felt immediately like at home.
Vanessa is a dynamic and exquisite young women, who made our stay perfect. SHe recommend and booked excellent restaurants, told us about the city, her history.
SHe even accompanied us to versailles market and showed us all the great food stalls.
Breakfasts were perfect ! home made cakes, croissants, fresh orange juices, homemade jams...
Rare things nowdays !!!!
She is also a great pastry cook: we had the chance to try some fremch desserts and her great macarons !
what else can i say ? do not miss the place if you go to versailles or its surroundings.
it is even very close to paris: 25 mimutes with the train.
Thanks VAnessa for this wonderful stay !

I’ve been an avid Trip Advisor reader for years, but this is only the second review I’ve submitted. When I read the many positive reviews about the Villa Versailles, I felt strongly that this was the place for my twenty-one-year-old daughter and me to stay during the first week of June. We wanted to study the town, palace, and gardens of Versailles in greater depth than the usual tourist as well as commute to Paris to revisit some of our favorite places. When we arrived in Versailles in the late afternoon, we felt as though we had gone to heaven: a golden light suffused the landscape in the late afternoon as we walked to the villa. Inside the villa’s gate, we found ourselves on a peaceful patio filled with fragrant roses just coming into bloom. Vanessa greeted us warmly, surprising us with a grand cake upon arrival and delighting us with an astounding breakfast the next day. Her hospitality and generosity were remarkable, continuing throughout the week as we returned home and recounted our adventures. She always provided wise counsel and often surprised us with a pastry at the end of a long day.
We came to feel at home in Versailles because of Vanessa’s hospitality and because we undertook small excursions to the Potager du Roi, the Cour des Senteurs, the Chapelle Royale and the Petit Hameau as well as markets and restaurants. The website of the Versailles tourist office is excellent. I recommend that visitors plan their visits in advance to arrange a free tour with a resident of Versailles, to attend a musical fountains show, to see a show or practice at the Bartabas equestrian academy, or to go on a tour of a historic quarter of the town with an actor in costume recreating the period of Louis XIV. We arrived at the beginning of June for Le Mois Molière, filled with theatre and music events----many free--- throughout the city of Versailles. We felt very fortunate to come into contact with so many French people in celebration of an exquisite and vibrant culture.
We spent as much time in Paris as we did in Versailles. It’s an easy commute via RER to the center of Paris. We found the RER less crowded and time-consuming than the metro. The C line stops at Tour Eiffel, Musée d’Orsay, Invalides, Saint-Michel, Bibliothèque Nationale, all of which connect to buses that go to other sights not to be missed. One does not need a car to be based in Versailles. We only had to walk a block with our luggage to catch an early morning bus to the RER station and on to CDG airport. To explore the palace gardens or town, we recommend renting a bike at the Versailles train station or in the gardens themselves.
Our goal was to gain deeper insight into the people and culture of France. We can think of no better place from which to do so than Vanessa’s Villa Versailles.

Dear Lindsay and Caroline,

Thank you so much for your great comment !
It was such a pleasure having you at Villa Versailles and seeing you doing and enjoying so much all the things you have done !
You were lucky: the good weather was there, the gardens were beautiful, the water fountains were on and the Molière month with all its animations was going on !

Good luck for Caroline for the rest of her studies !
I hope to have the chance to see you again
Take care
