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.

Lovely apartment close to the centre of Versailles

4 of 5
We had a lovely time in Versailles and the apartment was as described. The owners family and friends were quick to help us check in, even though we were delayed when arriving. The apartment itself has everything you need - we had our 18 mth old daughter with us but in general it was a safe place for her to walk about. The apartment was decorated with some quirky items, and also some lovely paintings by the owners. The centre of Versailles was only a 5 min walk away with lots of markets, shops and restaurants and we also explored Versailles palace and grounds, which were about a 15 mins walk away. There is a supermarket just up the road from the apartment which had everything we needed for a self catered apartment. We would definitely recommend the apartment to a couple or family of 3.

Very clean and spacious. Good view of Saint Louis church and the palace. It is worth walking up to the top floor.
