Staying in the town of Versailles, France

The town of Versailles is much more than just the home of the chateau where French Kings lived and hunted.
It is a pretty little town about 40 minutes from Paris.
 We had the great pleasure of staying at the Trianon Palace Hotel. a Waldorf Astoria property.
 The hotel also is home to a spa run by Guerlain.
The air inside the hotel is scented with Guerlain parfum. 
It has two onsite restaurants both excellent. And the property is right next to the palace grounds --you can see the goats and sheep grazing in the fields. When you walk out the front door of the hotel and turn right you are right at the Queen's entrance to the chateau grounds.
The grounds are open even when the palace is not. We  had fun walking around on Monday when it was relatively empty.We rented a golf cart and went all around and fed the swans.

It was fun walking around the town and discovering cute antique shops. It was also a nice change of pace from the bustle and traffic of Paris.
 I want to go back and spend more time in the town.
Have a Pink day!


  1. Wow Marie, had w wonderful, I pray I get to visit France one day....such beautiful everything so beautiful in France? I just adore French Furniture....


  2. Yes, France is very beautiful and they take such pride in displaying things well even wrapping up things you purchase well. I try and go every 2-3 years. Food is more flavorful there too locally grown, old varieties of tomatoes, fruit.
