After roaming through Louis XIV’s apartments and the gardens of Le Nôtre, there’s one final step to finish off this historic itinerary: lunch at Ore, the castle’s café restaurant overseen by Alain Ducasse, one of the kings (shall we say) of French cuisine.

The name of the establishment owes nothing to chance: ore, “mouth” in Latin, is a reference to those “pleasures of the mouth” so prized by the Versailles court that they epitomized the whole of the country’s savoir vivre.

So Ducasse has chosen an eminently French menu, with its great classics (including velouté Dubarry, soufflés and more) that are freshly and Simply reinterpreted, in keeping with the seasons, particularly for vegetable dishes.

In addition, over the course of the day, three traditional options are on offer: continental breakfast, a light lunch (salads and sandwiches) and an afternoon snack with delicate pastries. All in a stylish and classic setting.
