Description

Built in the second half of the 18th century for the Prince and Princess of Rohan-Guéméné, the property was acquired in 1783 by Louis XVI, who gave it to his sister, Madame Elisabeth. Le Monnier – Louis XVI’s physician, and also a botanist – assembled a collection of rare plants here, supplemented by a vegetable garden, an orangery and a dairy. Redesigned in the 19th century in the spirit of a romantic English garden, the park has retained its grotto, groves and views.

The beehives, organic vegetable garden and eco-grazing area have transformed the site into an eco-friendly family park which offers various beautifully restored areas for walking and exploring. Stroll among the trees – oak, maple, lime, fir, apple and pear, as well as sophora, Lebanese cedar and Virginia tulip – and enjoy the wide range of activities for young and old alike that are regularly organised throughout the year.

Discover the magnificent gardens of the Château de Versailles.
