O Trianon

The Trianon was the secondary residence of Louis XIV. To escape the multitude of Versailles, the king wanted an intimate residence to live his loves with his favorite Madame de Montespan and Maintenon. Then the palace becomes the place of the loves of Louis XV with Madame de Pompadour.

His original furniture was dispersed during the Revolution. The current furniture is from the First Empire. Napoleon restored the Trianon and spent some time there with Empress Marie-Louise.

Louis-Philippe was the last sovereign to devote himself to the palace. He settled with his family at the time of the great restoration works took place in the Castle of Versailles in the mid-19th  century. The furniture, in particular that of your private apartment, reflects the evolution of the lifestyles and tastes of society in search of better comfort and more intimacy.

In 1963, General de Gaulle took the initiative to restore the site with the goal of accommodating the hosts of the Republic and organizing there in the North Wing called the Trianon-sous-bois, a presidential residence.

You will be enchanted by this palace and its beautiful French-style gardens with fountains, woods and many flowers.
