Another side of Versailles

Millions of visitors make the trip to Versailles each year and queue to see the 700 room palace with its splendid Hall of Mirrors and Royal apartments.

               A portrait of Marie Antoinette with her children.

                   The Mansart designed chapel is quite beautiful.

                Marie Antoinette's own little theatre is charming.

But if you have time walk the full length of the gardens to the Hamlet which is the delightful farm setting created for Marie Antoinette and her friends to play at being shepherdesses and milkmaids !

There is a little educational farm with lots of cute animals in this perfectly idyllic setting - well worth a visit after the grandeur of the Palace. I loved it !
