Grand Trianon

Recommended
This delicate château made mainly of pink marble, was built by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in the 17C, and was reserved for the royal family. It is decorated in a sober manner, furnished with Empire, Restoration or Louis-Philippe style furniture, as it would have been in the time of Napoleon I and Louis-Philippe whose families once lived here. The flower gardens are full of charm. The only exception to the garden's simplicity is the Buffet d'Eau, a fountain by Jules Hardouin-Mansart (1703).
