Enjoyed a relaxing week in this lovely, typically French apartment, in the St Louis area of Versailles. Perfect if you want to visit the palace (15 minute walk) and the King's Kitchen Gardens are within sight at the end of the street. Local shops with all you need within a couple of minutes walk, boulangeries for you breakfast baguette, butchers, wonderful fruit and veg, fromagerie and mini supermarkets. Plenty of places to eat nearby too. We particularly liked the recently opened Portuguese café just across the road for afternoon tea! The apartment is well equipment and very comfortable, with obvious personal touches and attention to detail. This would also be a good base for visiting Paris as it's only ten minutes walk to the rail station. Lovely apartment!
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.
