Where to stay in Versailles

Though you can visit the palace of Versailles on a day trip from Paris, travelers interested in exporing outside the château should consider staying in the town of Versailles, Rambouillet, or Fontainebleau. All three of these boast historical centers and a number of accommodations for visitors, from swanky hotels to short-term apartment rentals. You may want to avoid the other nearby towns, like Senlis, which don't offer any lodging in their old town centers. To put yourself within walking distance of the grand palace, pick a spot along the main avenue in the town of Versailles. When staying here, you can experience first-hand what city planners took into consideration when building this new capital.

  • Across the Place des Armes you'll find the coach museum. There are different kinds of coaches with all there splendour  more »
  • This museum is free to the public which is always a plus. But really, it is a nice overview of royal carriages. There are several on display as well as some short films. It also has a funeral hearse. ...  more »
  • This was something quite different and worth going to see. All the different coaches are on display and very interesting to see the different ones, even one used as a hearse.  more »

  • I was not expecting to be so blown away! These carriages are VERY well preserved. From the cloth seats to the crest of the owner. It's right across the street from the Palace of Versailles. It's a piece of history you rarely get a chance to see.
  • It is a small museum with beautiful old carriages used by the last royal family or by Napoleon. You can visit it in 30 - 60 mins.
  • Small, but interesting museum. Also good with children. And it is even free.
  • Gallery of Coaches : Majestic coaches and small carriages for Marie-Antoinette's children, sedan chairs and sleds. The collection of coaches in Versailles is not composed of travel vehicles, but consists of grand ceremonial Berlin Coaches. Each carriage tells a piece of French history through a dynastic or political event such as the wedding of Napoléon I, the baptism of the Duke of Bordeaux, the Consecration Coach of Charles X or the funeral chariot of Louis XVIII. Recently restored, this collection of coaches, one of Europe’s most important, will be presented in a new, entirely redesigned space. Composed of two galleries, the exhibition space will expand over 1000m². Free admission from 12:30 pm to 5:30 pm, closed on Mondays. From the Palace of Versailles, it's approximately 5 minutes on foot. Also, Carriage Museum at Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte.
  • Beautiful. A must see
