Chteau De Versailles Gardens And Park - Review

800 hectares of classical French Gardens.They really do stand separately from the palace as an attraction in their own right – they’re one of the most beautiful examples of landscaping known to man and receive over 6 million visitors a year (as much as the Louvre). If the beautifully kept grass and the tens of thousands of flowers weren’t enough, the garden’s charm is further demonstrated by its spectacular musical fountains. In the night, the music is added to by a spectacular light show.

List of fountains to check:

  • Latona
  • Bacchus
  • Mirror
  • Saturn
  • Appolo
  • Flora
  • Ceres
  • Neptune (99 spectacular water effects composition)
  • Dragon (27 metre high water jet)
  • Nymph’s Bath
  • Pyramid

Then there’s the Orangerie, a beautiful and symmetric citrus garden with 1055 trees, some of which are over 200 years old; the sculptures of America, the Seasons, the Sun Vase and the Rivers; walks like The Fountain Walk, The Green Carpet Royal Walk and the Water Walk; the mile long Grand Canal; and finally the enchanting groves: the Queen’s Grove, the Girandole Grove, the Ballroom, the King’s Garden, the Colonnade, the Domes and the Enceladus.

  • The garden are enormous so wear comfortable shoes. It is really beautiful though especially in summer when the flowers are blooming. In summer you have to pay for the areas with the groves and fountains but its 9.50 which is not so much for what you get to experience. The ballroom grove is an original and is very cool to see. It's very common also to bring a picnic so that's a good option if you don't want to go to one of the restaurants. There are boat rides on the lake, you can rent a bike or golf cart or take a shuttle train if you are not up for the walk from place to place.

  • Beautiful and very extensive gardens, designed by the prolific Andre Le NĂŽtre. Just like the Chateau, these are well worth visiting. There is a (at least one) food stand in the wooded area to the left side as you walk away from the chateau, which sells various items (sandwiches, ice cream, etc). Toilets adjacent. Makes a good stop if you've toured the chateau & now want to spend an hour or two in the gardens.

  • Was luck enough to see the fountains in action as they had been turned off coz of the drought. Place was amazing with or with out the fountains on. Lunch in the gardens was very well priced. Tried to rent a golf cart but big queue so had to walk 😆

  • The most underwhelming garden I have seen in a long time. Some fairly pleasing displays of bedding plants in the south parterre (which you can see before buying a ticket). Not a single other thing in flower anywhere in the main fountain section (I visited in July). Poorly maintained, and mostly just dusty paths and overgrown hedges. Some of the fountains might be impressive, but even on the days when you pay 8€ entry (I am a student) for the fountain displays, only one runs all the time, and there is in fact only an hour and a half in the whole day when all the fountains and groves are running... So most of them I didn't even see in action. Visit the palace, and visit the gardens by all means. Just don't expect them to be like English country gardens.

  • Chateau de Versailles. About 45m from Paris, this Palace and Gardens overshadow much of the palaces in Europe. The madness of a King and an era made this monumental architectural work ... The Gardens can be visited for free with no queues to enter while there are tickets to the Palace and usually waiting lines. Arrive early and wanting to walk through the labyrinth of gardens enjoying the fountain of horses .... Magnifico
