Create an itinerary including The Trianons & The Hamlet
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.

  • Pretty cool place to visit. My wife has wanted to visit since she was in 8th grade, so I took her before we started trying to have babies. We had so much fun and it was so extravagant and beautiful. Definitely take the chance to visit if you can. Worth the effort for the memories!!
  • Beautiful but had issues during visit. Had tickets that didn't allow access to the gardens because it was a special day. Bought extra ticket to gain access. Rented golf cart to go to the far side of the estate and had to scan tickets to get back through to the main building. Later, tried to go back into the garden, we weren't allowed because the ticket was only good for 2 scans. Not told this when purchased. Seemed like a racket! We left early and disappointed. Felt ripped off. Read the fine print!
