The Grand Canal is the main focal point of all the gardens. We saw many people renting rowboats during our two-day visit....looking very relaxed. This is a good way to get some upper body exercise, especially with all the exercise your legs get walking and climbing stairs.

I moved here a couple of months ago & got myself a bike (everybody in Versaille cycles even the pensioners) I come here most Sundays the scenery is to die for,, the locals abound with picnics,,, sitting reading books,,, painting,,,, rowers on the canal. An amazing place with so much atmosphere & history.

These gardens are way better than the actual palace at Versailles. They are huge and you can spend an entire day within them. The gardening is great. Best of all, there is tons of free space unlike many attractions in Versailles and Paris.

This B&B is a justly rated top place to stay. The guest house is contemporary but the whole of your experience will recall the gentle pace and elegance of another era. Breakfast may be taken outside in your personal little garden and your location is no further than a 10 minutes' walk to the palace and other attractions.

Your hostess, Vanessa, will help with everything you need - times to visit the palace, good places to eat (Le Limousin!) as well as serve you macaroons, pain au chocolat, brioche.....


It was an experience like taking your home to France: having your own separate house you have independence and privacy. But Vanessa is always there in her main house to help with any questions or needs.

Villa Versailles is a wonderful discovery particular for those who want a non-commercial hotel for their stay in Versailles. To compare Villa Versailles....well, think of it as your small Ritz, with Mr Ritz on hand for any and everything.

Villa Versailles is a stupendous 5-star experience!

The gardens are fantastic and worth the extra money to check out. The Paris Museum Pass does NOT include th Gardens.

Wonderfully manicured and at times it can feel like your alone, or close to it. There are even a few places to grab a bite to eat. Take your time, take it, get lost.
