Located in close proximity to the Palace of Versailles, Le Potager du Roi once produced fresh fruit and vegetables for the court of Louis XIV. Today the gardens are supervised by a prestigious French national school, École Nationale Supérieure du Paysage, which trains skilled gardeners and landscape architects. View the wide variety of vegetables and over 400 species of fruit trees grown here, which supply the French public with over 30 tons (60,000 lbs) of vegetables and 50 tons (100,000 lbs) of fruit each year.

  • The vegetable garden is in a sad state! Lack of resources, because those involved do their best to present rare plants or innovative growing techniques. The reception is excellent, we explain as much as you want. But alas, vast areas of the garden would need extra hands to be fully developed. Go ahead, not what to support the maintenance of this place, accessible at low cost.

  • The vegetable garden is huge (9 ha) in the Versailles and magnificent, the orchard trees very well carved and exciting guide. Too bad that the guided tour lasts one hour. Without being a great gardener, I would have liked to learn more about the different varieties of fruits and vegetables grown and culture methods. The Potager du Roi is less well-known than the Castle, but it is worth. I recommend it.
