Further information


The Queen's Hamlet, built for Marie-Antoinette between 1783 and 1787, was constructed and decorated by the architect Richard Mique and originally comprised a dozen or so buildings, of which the largest was the Queen's House. The picturesque bucolic appearance of the exterior of the buildings contrasted with a sophisticated interior decor that has greatly evolved over the centuries.

Now restored and refurnished according the layout designed for Marie-Louise in 1810, the Queen’s House is once again open to the public for Guided Tours. The occasion is also an opportunity to present a series of items linked to the world of Marie-Antoinette and the Hamlet.

Exclusively in its online store, the Palace of Versailles is proposing a limited-edition range of bags and accessories made from the tarpaulin covering the restoration site of the Queen's House.
