Parc du Domaine de Madame Élisabeth, Versailles
(4.6/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
Louis XVI bought Parc du Domaine de Madame Élisabeth 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.

  • If these aren't the castle gardens, it is however a place very nice, infrequent, where he wants, especially on sunny days.

  • A large green in the heart of Versailles Park... If we're a little interested in the history of France, it can be touched by the life of the Princess. We visit the home also and plantations as well as new and interesting temporary exhibitions. It is smaller and less impressive than the Castle but shorter and much cheaper, or free on some occasions...

  • Beautiful park with a variety of trees a little d maintenance would not hurt but this place is relaxing and allows to walk in the quiet with good prospects on the remains. L orangeraie offers even more intimate space.

  • 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...
