About the property

a stylish studio with a separate kitchen and 2 bicycles for 2-4 guests

WIFI and free phone to over 120 countries landlines (including Europe, Americas, Oceania, Asia, etc).

Welcome to the Sun King dream city !

Live "French style" in our new 35m2 studio which will warmly accommodate you in the historic Saint Louis district of Versailles town.

It is situated only 6 minutes' walk away through beautiful streets from the Versailles Palace and from the RER C station (which leads quickly and directly to Paris down-town: Eiffel Tower, Orsay Museum, Notre-Dame, etc...).

Shops, cafés and restaurants are literally seconds away from your door.

The rate includes all taxes, utilities, high quality bed-linen, large towels, unlimited internet access with WIFI, and free phone to over 120 countries landlines.

The building dates from the 18th century but our classic studio was renovated in May 2014. We are on the “noble” second level (“étage noble” in French) where ceilings are over 10 feet high. Only a few steps to climb, easy for bringing your luggage and your shopping. The access to the building is secured by two digital access codes.

In the bright main room with its French traditional flavor, you will find a double bed and a double sofa-bed (both 140cm wide).

We have designed a kitchen separated from the main room, equipped to the best standards. To save on your shopping time, we provide you a starting supply of spices and condiments. Shampoo and shower-gel are also provided so you do not have to bring your own, making your travel bags lighter!

On top of these, we have prepared two adult bicycles for you to stroll the streets and parks of Versailles at leisure.


What to see in our neighborhood ?

The Palace of Versailles is a set of remarkable constructions which consist of the Royal Palace itself, the Orangerie, the World famous gardens, the Grand Trianon, the Petit Trianon and the Queen's Hamlet.

But also, the town of Versailles in its St. Louis and Notre Dame areas shows a splendid architectural unity, as it was built mainly in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and it offers wonderful walks and discoveries. Do not be afraid of falling from starvation, there are more than 200 bars and restaurants where you can restore your strength.

To help you a little at the beginning: a few meters from our place, the rue du Maréchal Joffre is bordered on one side by the Saint Louis Cathedral (1754) and on the other by the Potager du Roi (the King's Vegetable Garden), which you can visit and where you can buy fruits and vegetables as they were provided to the Royal Court . You can walk 3 minutes further and see the Carrés Saint Louis, a 1737 'shopping mall' !

-In the opposite direction , right after crossing the rue de l'Orangerie, our street becomes the pedestrian rue de Satory, lined with shops and restaurants. Fancy a croissant in the morning? This is also the path that leads to the castle of Versailles (6 minutes from our place).

You can also walk 3 minutes to the west and enjoy watching, opposite the Orangerie, the Pièce d'eau des Suisses, a beautiful pond partly built by the Swiss Guards of Louis XIV in 1678.

Exhibitions running soon at the Versailles Palace:

Peter the Great, a tsar in France. 1717

From May 30th till September 24th 2017, this exhibition will be dedicated to the stay of Peter the Great in Paris and at the Palace of Versailles in May and June 1717, celebrating the tercentenary of his trip in France.

To know more:



What about Paris, 17 km away ?

Many Versaillais commute every day to Paris. To go to Paris by public transport is very easy, the RER C is 6 minutes walk from the studio (Versailles Rive Gauche station) and takes you in 30 minutes directly to the Eiffel Tower, the Musée d'Orsay or Notre-Dame stations.

If you want to go to La Défense, you should instead take the A or H bus for 10 minutes to reach the Versailles Rive Droite station where the train (L line) will bring you there in 20 minutes.


An ideal base for touring the West of Paris

If you have a vehicle, you can take advantage of our location in Versailles to avoid traffic jams and visit more easily the area west of Paris that is quite interesting. Some suggestions:

-11 km away, the Château de Monte-Cristo , a surprising villa that Dumas built with his copyrights from the novel of the same name in 1846.

-12 km away, the Château de Malmaison, owned by Josephine de Beauharnais, Napoleon's first wife. The Museum houses beautiful Empire style furniture.

-15 km away, Saint Germain en Laye, the birthplace of Louis XIV , do not miss the seventeenth century narrow streets and the National Museum of Archaeology in the Royal Castle of Saint Germain en Laye ( 30,000 objects from prehistory to the Merovingian dynasty).

-65 km away, Giverny, Home and Garden of Claude Monet. Everything has been restored to the condition that the artist has known . Beautiful gardens and a house with a soul ... 10 km on the way back, you should visit La Roche-Guyon, a picturesque village with a surprising castle built against, into and on top of the chalk cliffs overlooking the Seine valley.

- if you're waking up a bit early, why not visit the Invasion beaches in Normandy ? It takes 3 hours and about 260 km to go to Arromanches , but it is perfectly feasible on a single day trip.

An very nice, clean apartment located near great food and walking distance to the Palace

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several days in July of 2017 and found it to be a lovely apartment in a great neighborhood with a small grocery store nearby as well as excellent restaurants and pubs within just a couple of blocks. The main Versailles train station is also a very short walk away. There's a beautiful park nearby, and the Palace of Versaille is a 5 minute walk away. Step out the front door of this building, turn left and walk 60 seconds and there are multiple very good restuarants.

The apartment itself is clean and modern, with all ameneties you might need. Easily sleeps three, could sleep two couples easily as long as you're comfortable with sharing the same room. Modern, well stocked kitchen and bathroom. Would definitely suggest staying here if you're spending any time in Versailles.

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our experience with Romain and our stay in the apartment was top rate. The apartment is lovely with beautiful windows as its main aesthetic draw. The apartment was well stocked with sundries and kitchen equipment. The location of the apartment (5 minutes for Place Versailles, 5 minutes to the train station, 2 minutes to a lovely street full of restaurants to suit all tastes) made our stay one that we won't soon forget. We would definitely stay here again!
