Hotels in Versailles

A popular large town in Île-de-France, Versailles is renowned the world over for the Château de Versailles as well as its stunning gardens, and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town is also known for its historic treaties, such as the 1783 Treaty of Paris, which ended the American Revolutionary War as well as the Treaty of Versailles after WWI. Today, Versailles is a wealthy suburb of Paris and a major tourist destination.

History

Versailles is a ‘new' French town, founded by King Louis XIV in 1682. It was the de facto capital of France for over a century, before it became widely known as the cradle of the French Revolution.

The Palace of Versailles

One of Versailles' main attractions is the Château de Versailles, or the Palace of Versailles. The château is of huge historical significance and is stunning both inside and out. Visitors can take tours through the interior, the grand gardens, Marie-Antoinette's estate and the Grand Trianon. Early arrival is advised, and a pre-booked guided tour is a great way of bypassing the queues. Don't miss the King's Grand Apartments, the beautiful Hall of Mirrors and the Museum of the History of France.

Another must-see at the palace is the Grandes Eaux Musicales, a beautiful garden composed mostly of fountain structures, the largest of which was built in the 17th century and consists of 99 individual fountains.

Horse lovers should make a visit to the Palace's Royal Stables, where you can see horses trained and ridden by the best the equestrian world has to offer.

The town

Once you have visited the château and all it has to offer, a short walk into the main town reveals small, historic churches and a scattering of small shops. Shopping is another way to spend time in Versailles. The château has a gift shop as well as other souvenir shops just outside. However, shopaholics can find real retail therapy along the Boulevard de La Reine, the Rue Chantiers, Rue Mar Foch, and the Rue Mar Joffre.

Food and drink

While eating in the grounds of the château does save time and energy, visiting a small patisserie or café in the town gives a much more satisfying and authentic experience. The small French eateries are often less expensive than the tourist-driven area of the château. Try Boulangerie for a quick slice of pizza or fresh baguette, or L'Resto du Roy for a typically French dining experience.

Another option in warm, dry weather is a picnic by the lake at the château. There are a few grocery stores and an outdoor market in the town which sell bread, cheese, deli meats and wine.

Versailles hotels are many and varied, ranging from quaint B&Bs to larger and more luxurious establishments.
