Visit the Marly estate



Opening times and access

The Château de Marly was built by Jules Hardouin-Mansart from 1679 on for the leisure activities of Louis XIV and his family. The estate then consisted of a château surrounded by twelve pavilions. At Marly, the king gave his full attention to the gardens. The landscape offered a variety of perspectives and the Marly "machine" provided the fountains an abundance of water that was impossible in Versailles. Although regarded as an architectural marvel, Marly and its gardens were progressively destroyed in the 18th century. Today, only the outline of the park and the foundations of the pavilions are still visible.

Opening times of the park
