Versailles

December 30, 2016

Today we went to Versailles and we got to see Marie Antoinette farm house, where she would go to get away from Versailles and have private time. This may not look like a lot to us, but she enjoyed spending time here because it reminded her of her childhood growing up in Austria. Unfortunately we weren’t able to see her apartment because it is being restored. During Maries time here she commissioned marvelous landscaped gardens centered around hamlet of cottages built in rustic style then in vogue compared to the rest of Versailles. It was crazy to think that only a few miles away was the castle of Versailles where everything was glitz and glamorous. While here it was more country living. It’s weird that someone of Marie Antoinette’s title would prefer the country living compared to her Versailles life.
