Overview

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:

"Visitors to Versailles 1682-1789 "

Jointly produced by the Palace of Versailles and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It will be on display in Versailles from the 22nd of October 2017 to the 25th of February 2018 and will later be held in New York from 9th April. Cosmopolitan Versailles has welcomed French and foreign travellers, princes, ambassadors, artists, writers and philosophers, architects, scholars, tourists on the "Grand Tour" and day trippers from near and far. From the ambassadors of Siam in 1686 to the ambassadors of the Indian Kingdom of Mysore in 1788, representatives from almost every continent came to Versailles.

---------------------------------------------

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.

Fantastic apartment and so close to the Palace

We have had a fantastic weekend in Versailles. Apartment is lovely and minutes away from the Palace.

Romain is so helpful when it comes to booking the apartment and thoughtfully provides information on travel, logistics etc.

We will come back and look forward to experiencing Versailles in the sun!

Very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, and this rental was perfect for us. It is very close to everything that we wanted to do in Versailles, and it was beautiful and easily accessed. Romain was diligent in making sure we had everything we needed and provided us with useful advice about what to see and do. If we are ever back in Versailles we will certainly return.

Wonderful studio flat with amazing ambiance!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here Sept 25 - 28, 2017! The location is prime with a 5 min walk to the Palace of Versailles and the beautiful gardens! We absolutely loved the studios old wood floors,, modern well equipped kitchen and beautiful bathroom! This studio was bright, clean with high ceilings, and large windows with huge wooden shutters that could be open during the day or closed to block out the noise and light at night.It was by far our favorite stop on our 10 day trip through France and England.

Romain and Elise are just lovely! They were very quick to respond to any questions I had whether it was regarding what train to take from Paris or the many other questions I had.

Restaurants are plentiful and a beautiful bakery and crepery almost within a few steps from the front door! We literally walked from the train station to the flat! We felt very safe and loved the area.

We used the bikes that Romain and Elise had to access the beautiful gardens of Versailles! A fabulous way to explore and see so much more!

Thank you Romain and Elise for being so welcoming and making our trip to France an unforgettable experience.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a wonderful blend of the ambiance of the St. Louis quartier with old floors, high ceilings, great windows overlooking the busy street, and modern, well-equipped kitchen and bathroom.It is very charming and comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it is more spacious than it appears in the photographs. The location is prime with multiple restaurants and patisseries at your doorstep and easy access to the Chateau. Elise and Romain, the hosts, could not have been more accommodating - highly solicitous of our welfare and quick to respond to any requests. We would welcome the opportunity to stay again.

Heart of the city; walk to shops, restaurants, palace

  • 5 of 5

Lovely flat in city center. 5 minute stroll to palace. 1-5 minutes for various (~10-15) restaurants, creperies, bakeries. They have bikes which, can make the gardens much more accessible. Romaine and Elise are very fast to return communication!

The palace is wonderful, recommend the night fountain show in the summer months. It is worth every penny and this flat makes it so easy to do! People were fleeing to catch cabs and metro while we had a lovely walk through very safe streets at midnight under the stars in Versailles!!

The flat has laundry and refrigerator. Huge shutters on street facing windows to let in a breeze or shit out city noise. Very effective for either.

Versailles is a wonderful stopping point on the way to Giverny to see Monet's gardens. We did 2 nights here and then to Giverny. When we return to France we would love to be able to book this flat but probably reserve in advance! The location is simply too good for a last minute booking, I would think.

Thank you Romaine and Elise for being so welcoming! One of our most unforgettable experiences in France!
