Domaine de Madame Elisabeth, Versailles

(4.6/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Louis XVI bought Domaine de Madame Elisabeth for his younger sister, Elizabeth, in 1783, as a place where she and others could take a break from life at court. But that ended in 1789 with the French Revolution. Renovated several times over the years, the site now consists of a rectangular main building with two floors flanked by two pavilions. Of the original house, only three rooms in the apartment of Madame Elizabeth remain intact--ironically, rooms she never used because she slept every night at the castle. On the grounds, you will find an orangery as well as some magnificent gardens.

  • In the middle of the field of Madam avenue! Out of time, little or no tourists. A nice walk!

  • A place while peace, remarkable trees, an alley enriched with poems about the Yvelines, benches here and there to delve into a book, or deteriorate in bucolic contemplation... Closed from end of November to end of February, but the rest of the year, a treat!

  • The park and house are very lovely & complete a day of visits in Versailles. I highly recommend this place. You can easily imagine the lives of ladies back in Louis XVI & Marie-Antoinette's days ! The domain is located on the avenue in front of the Palace; you can walk there (about 10/15 min) or take the 171 bus in front of the Palace and it's the 3 bus stop (about 3/5 min). One piece of advice: visit the website in order to know the opening days .
  • Too good. Visit emergency. Finally with a little ray of sunshine is better...

  • Ideal to take the air and the Sun, far from the crowded Park of the Castle. Quiet place.
