Overview

About the property

A cute and quiet ground floor apartment for 2 guests with a garden patio

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 newly renovated 26m2 two room apartment which will warmly accommodate you in the historic Saint Louis district of Versailles town.

It is situated in a beautiful 18th Century building, about 10 minutes' walk away through ancient streets from the Versailles Palace.

For public transportation, it is very convenient as it lays 6 minutes' walk from both the RER C station (which leads quickly and directly to Paris down-town: Eiffel Tower, Orsay Museum, Notre-Dame, etc...) and the Versailles Chantiers train station that can bring you many places (Paris Gare Montparnasse in 25 minutes, or even Chartres in one hour !)

Shops, cafés and restaurants are literally a few meters away from your door.

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

No need to climb old stairs to reach our place which is at ground level, easy for bringing your luggage and your shopping. The access to the building is secured by a digital access code.

In the bright living room with its French traditional flavor, you will find a trumeau, a table, a sofa and a wide screen LCD TV.

The bedroom has a double bed, 140 cm wide, so we can accommodate 2 guests provided they share the same bed.

We have designed a kitchen separated from the living 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!

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

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 d'Anjou crosses the Carrés Saint Louis, a 1737 'shopping mall' ! It then passes behind the Saint Louis Cathedral (1754) and leads directly to 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 to the Palace and check the Jeu de Paume (the birthplace of the French Revolution) on your way.

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 our place (Versailles Rive Gauche station) and takes you in 30 minutes directly to the Eiffel Tower, the Musée d'Orsay or Notre-Dame stations. You can also use the Versailles Chantiers station to reach Montparnasse.

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.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days in Romain and Elise's apament to celebrate my husbands birthday.

They contacted us well in advance of our trip, to give details about the apartment and the town. At the time of our visit there were disruptions on the RER line so they also contacted us to give advise about coming via Gare Montparnasse ,which was very thoughtful.

We were given a wonderful welcome at the apartment by Elise.

It is a fairly small place, very comfortable,beautifully decorated, well appointed. Ideal for 2. The kitchen and bathroom are clean and modern and have all the things you have in your own home.

It is close to shops, bars and restaurants. You can walk to the Palace and to all the other interesting buildings and areas of the town from there too.

We had a fantastic time.

Romain sent us a message during our stay to check we were OK,again,really thoughtful.

After we got home our deposit was returned really quickly .

Thank you so much Domain and Elise, you are fantastic hosts.

Excellent for a short stay

  • 4 of 5

Very nicely furnished and well equipped apartment. Good flexible heating facilities, including heated towel rail. Plenty of hot water and good shower. We only ate breakfast in the apartment, after quick dash to the nearby boulangerie. Lots of good restaurants within 400 metres. Romain and Elise were very helpful and kept us well informed about everything, including good advice on eating out. Recommend unreservedly for comfort and location.

A week in Versailles

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean and tidy. 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.

Прекрасная квартира, прекрасный город, всем рекомендую!

  • 5 of 5

Очень рады, что выбрали именно эту квартиру в этом городе. Париж прекрасен, но слишком шумный, суетливый и из-за этого может угнетать, когда находишься там долго. В Версале царит красота, спокойствие и уют. Идеальное место! Точно такое же впечатление произвела и сама квартира. Очень светлая, уютная, атмосферная, оборудована всем необходимым для комфортного пребывания. Рядом много кафе и магазинов. А до самой главной достопримечательности - Версальского даорца, идти буквально 10-15 минут. И совсем рядом два вокзала. Самым близким и удобным нам показался вокзал Versailles Chateau Rive Gauche. Кстати сувенирные магазины недалёко от вокзала нам понравились больше, чем в Париже.

Очень приятные впечатления остались от общения с хозяевами квартиры. Стараются помочь максимально быстро с любым вопросом. Хотя у нас не было никаких проблем за всё время нашего пребывания. Очень доброжелательные, открытые и милые люди!

В общем, мы всем настоятельно рекомендуем эту квартиру и этот город.

A lovely quiet location within a short walk to the palaces.

  • 5 of 5

A great little apartment to stay for a few days when visiting Versailles. The owner was very attentive and keen to ensure we had everything we needed including a cot and high chair for a toddler.

Versailles is a very nice town, principally built during the 17th and 18th century, and most of the buildings remain today. It's quite a sight, on top of the Palace.
