the groves

Apollo’s Baths Grove, the Ballroom Grove and the Obelisk, all groves designed by André Le Nôtre that played a prominent role in Court life at Versailles. They were places for taking a stroll or enjoying some entertainment, and, over the centuries, they were redesigned many times.

The maze

André Le Nôtre began work on the Maze Grove, which, alas, no longer exists, in the Palace gardens in 1668, based on an idea by Charles Perrault, who was, at the time, in charge of styling the royals’ arts and entertainment programme. It comprised 38 fountains, which were built between 1672 and 1674 at the intersections of the walkways, after a water network had been installed.À vous de jouer : traversez le bosquet disparu du Labyrinthe pour trouver la sortie.
