Château de Versailles Garden

( No user reviews )

The famous French landscape designer André Le Nôtre laid out these gardens southwest of Paris in the 17th century. The 250 acres are riddled with paths that lead to flower beds, quiet corners decorated with classical statuary, ornamental lakes, and a canal used for gondola rides by King Louis XIV.

Annual highlights include the Fountain shows, the occasional Fetes de Nuit (Night festivals) and changing exhibitions on the king's gardens. It is also a treat to visit the Chateau itself.

These extravagant gardens continue to dazzle more and more visitors.
