Behind the walls and the pageantry of the Grand Apartments lie the private apartments of the Kings. Discover the intimate atmosphere and refined decoration of the living spaces: the dining room, the Clock Cabinet, the Cabinet d’Angle with Louis XV’s rolltop desk – considered one of the most famous pieces of furniture in the world – Louis XVI’s library, etc.

THE PRIVATE LIFE OF MARIE-ANTOINETTE


The Queen enjoyed taking refuge in her private chambers to escape the pressures of official life: her apartments and her furniture, her tastes and her entourage, give us a good idea of her everyday life.

Practical information

 

THE KING'S VEGETABLE GARDEN

The Park of Versailles, with its groves, its paths and its perspectives, often lead us to forget that there exists nearby a space which is the perfect complement: the King’s vegetable garden, or le Potager du Roi. In this visit, guided by a student of the National School of Landscape (ENSP), you will discover the close links between the King’s vegetable garden and the Park of Versailles.
