  • Amazing to see this giant garden in the middle of the city. Different types of vegetables are planted, and the garden is huge. You can't visit it winter

  • We visited the garden/garden of the King and the truth that what we liked was the "gate of the King", well to the French style that is repeated on all the grounds of the Palace.

  • Sunday walk in the family under a spring sun. No need to book tickets in advance. Guided tours (duration 1 h) 3 times a day included in the price of the ticket. Luckily, the speaker was there to save the visit: little maintained garden.

  • I agree with Gary chubby. It is an impression of total amateurism. It seems that the place is run by a construction site of young volunteers more or less hippie amateurs. incompetence, sloppiness, lack of resources or Prurience (broken windows are repaired with tape, for example). the planks of vegetables are poorly maintained, full of weeds, Hedges are not cut. It gives the general impression to be fallow and abandoned...

  • Visit in the fall, not a great interest!

  • 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.
