Make a holiday apartment in Versailles your home away from home

Versailles is a stunning Paris suburb, bursting with history, which is also conveniently situated a mere 20 kilometres from the bustling city centre. Having acted as the nation’s political centre of for roughly 100 years before the French Revolution, Versailles was designed to cater to royalty, and as such, the region exudes culture, romance and decadence. A Versailles holiday apartment is consequently perfect if you’re interested in planning a romantic getaway, a special family break or a holiday during which you can simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the fantastic French culture and cuisine. As well as holiday apartments in Versailles, HomeAway offers a fabulous selection of historical homes to let.

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.

Wonderful Place to Stay

5 of 5
It is the 4th time we have stayed at this apartment and it is so welcoming after a long flight from Australia. It is very clean and well maintained. The owners have always provided good customer service. It is an ideal location to enjoy Versailles and Paris. My husband and I have taken trips to Roland Garros, Orleans, Rouen and a few days at St Malo. Our local cafe, Franco Belge, which is below the apartment, serves meals mainly frequented by the locals. It is a nice spot to have a meal or just a coffee. We hope to return again.

Fantastic stay

5 of 5
This apartment was perfect for my husband and I. It was comfortable, clean and quiet, and was equipped with everything anybody needs. The accommodation is situated perfectly, being close to a supermarket, shops, restaurants and the palace. Communication with the owner was easy and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.
