Hamlet of Marie Antoinette in Versailles

Surprise Proposal in Marie Antoinette Hamlet Versailles by Eny Therese Photography

Beautiful, relatively unknown and peaceful

The Trianon Palaces and the Queen’s Hamlet located in the back of the gardens.

The queen actually used the hamlet as a place for relaxing walks, where she would go to escape the burdens of life and to host small gatherings. The fact that the hamlet was also a functioning farm, a point upon which the queen insisted, meant that it served an educational role for the royal children. 

Meadows, lakes and streams dotted with country cottages, windmills, even with a little farm and mill complete with livestock.

SPECIAL : Versailles is my playground, so entrance ticket to the palace, garden, park and Hamlet of Versailles for photographer and Videographer are FREE.
