The Allée des Mortemets is restored to its original design

We are now replanting the Allée des Tilleuls, which is the continuation of the Allée d’Apollon connecting the Palace of Versailles to Mortemets, a waterfowl reserve in Louis XIV’s hunting grounds.

Integrated in 1662 to the great landscape composition created by André Le Nôtre, gardener to the Sun King, it forms part of the famous perspectives of the gardens of Versailles.
