Things to do

Visitors in holiday apartments in Versailles will never find themselves at a loss for things to see and do, and as an added bonus, is possible to forgo a hire car whilst staying in the city, without missing out on any of the region’s great activities and attractions.

-The Palace and Gardens of Versailles, situated within walking distance of most Versailles holiday homes, are the major tourist attraction, owing both to their stunning beauty and historical significance. The Palace itself was constructed around an existing Chateau by order of Louis XIII during the 1600’s, whilst the surrounding gardens began to take their current form during the early to mid 1700’s. Even if you’re not interested in history behind these brilliant attractions however, the interior of the palace, which includes the famous “Hall of Mirrors”, is certainly worth seeing!

-The museums scattered throughout the area make for a great way to spend a few days. Some of the more popular institutions include: the Museum of French History, located in the Palace of Versailles; the Lambinet Museum, which houses historical furniture, sculptures and art; and the des Toiles de Jouy Museum, which displays a permanent collection of amazing Toile fabric articles.

-The markets in Versailles are a fantastic way to really get in touch with the region’s rich culture, with numerous different marketplaces popping up at regular intervals throughout the city. If you’re looking for some tasty French treats to take back to your Versailles holiday apartment however, the Jussieu-Montreuil Market, the Porchefontaine Markets and the Notre Dame Markets will certainly not disappoint. The Versailles Flower Market is also great if you’re interested in something a little out of the ordinary.

-The Royal Opera, which dates back to the late 1700’s, is located within the Palace of Versailles, and is a definite must-see regardless of whether you’re hoping to see a play, an opera, a ballet, a concert or an orchestral event. The newly renovated interior of this architectural beauty is also guaranteed to have you returning to your Versailles holiday home feeling like you’ve spent the evening with 18th century royalty.

-As Paris is only a hop skip and jump from Versailles, day trips to well-known locations such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Palace, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Moulin Rouge are a great way to spend your break. If you have the time you may also be interested in some of the great day tours starting from Paris, such as wine and champagne tasting tours, and Disneyland Paris is within commutable distance.

The weather in Versailles

Versailles experiences warm dry summers, which means that the period between May and September is generally the most enticing for international and domestic tourists. Visiting during the winter months can also make for a great getaway however, as popular tourist attractions such as the Palace of Versailles are much quieter, and the chance of getting a great deal on your holiday accommodation is certainly higher.

Getting to Versailles

Versailles is easily accessed from Paris’s two major international airports via train, bus, taxi or hire car, although a taxi is not really recommended as the trip can be quite costly (in excess of 50€ one way). Regardless of which option you choose however, you should be relaxing in your beautiful Versailles holiday home within the space of an hour.

We were met on arrival by our host who was warm and welcoming. Which made a huge difference to us. There is some noise from whoever is staying above the apartment at night therefore you can hear someone walking around, but there is no loud music just slight noise from the street outside from time to time. We have no problems with the apartment as it is about ten minutes from Versailles Palace and from the amazing City itself. There are regular trains to Paris too. We also visited Giverny(Monets House and Garden), which is about 50 minutes away by car. We had a wonderful stay in our apartment and Versailles Palace was a truly amazing place.
