By adopting a bench in the Queen’s Grove, you are leaving your mark in a stunning garden crafted for Queen Marie Antoinette.


Created in 1776 especially for Queen Marie Antoinette, the Queen’s Grove is a unique creation in the gardens of Versailles. Its richness lies in its compositions of diverse plant life newly introduced to Europe, centered around the Virginia tulip poplar.

Thanks to a host of generous patrons, a large-scale restoration effort has been undertaken at the Queen’s Grove between 2019 to 2021, offering Versailles visitors a piece of exceptional horticultural heritage.

The installation of new benche -modeled after those of the 18th century- will complete the restoration of the Grove and enrich its décor. They invite visitors to rest for a moment and immerse themselves in the delicate aromas of these green corridors and appreciate the essence of this botanical haven steeped in history.
