Marie-Antoinette's estate

Listen to the stories and get to know Marie Antoinette, the Queen of Fashion. With her personal dressmaker and friend, Rose Bertin, the Queen invented a style of her own, expressing her vivid personality with dresses, accessories and extravagant haircuts. Thanks to her influence, fashion rose to the forefront of society.

Your guide will show you the garden of the Petit Trianon which includes, if it is open, the visit to the Queen’s Theatre. This small theatre, perfectly preserved from the time, is one of the most beautiful historical theatres that you will ever see.

She was passionate about shows and unlike any other queens of France, Marie Antoinette used to perform on stage.

Have a stroll in the English Gardens, and absorb the vaster, wilder and more natural landscape than the well-refined French formal gardens. The Queen requested only two constructions here: the Temple of Love- a jewel of garden decoration and the Belvedere- a luminous building with many windows, used by the Queen as a lounge during the summer months.
