At the gates of the palace...

Just ten minutes from our hotel lies the Palace of Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was built to show the artistic and political might of France. Often dubbed the “greatest palace in the world”, it  initially started off as a modest hunting lodge constructed under Louis XIII. It was this location that was nonetheless chosen by Louis XIV to build the palace that we know today, a palace unlike any other and a symbol of royal absolutism and an incarnation of French classical art.
