We had a great time in Versailles. We went to the Palace Gardens on several occasions, for picnics.
We also explored the surrounding areas, going to Giverny to see Monet's house and gardens. We also drove to Chartres to see the Cathedral and we spent 2 separate days in Paris going by train. The station was only a 10 minute walk away.
During our time there we also managed to squeeze in a day trip to Euro Disney, which we enjoyed despite the long queues.
Overall we stayed for 10 days and we found loads to do in and around Versailles to ensure that we did not have any spare time to read the books that we had taken with us.
Excellent locale; it suited our party of three young adults perfectly. Near a bus station and the metro, which was very convenient. Our only complaint was the hot weather, though that could hardly be helped, and indeed with the windows open there was a fine breeze to cool the rooms very well. Annie met us and helped us along to the flat and up to the second (third in American speak) floor, then kindly explained the roads and buses, etc.
