Local Attractions

Originally a small medieval village located some fourteen miles away from Paris, the City of Versailles is now a bustling metropolis. French monarchs once governed all of France from the city, which, for a time, served as the de facto capital of the entire realm. King Louis XIV, who developed the community, intended for the settlement to serve as the embodiment of the country’s prestige and glamour. Today, guests staying at the Hôtel Le Louis Versailles Château - MGallery by Sofitel can experience this grandeur for themselves. Just a few hundred yards away from the hotel resides the imposing Palace of Versailles, with its shadow looming majestically over the hotel. For the last 30 years, this stunning building has been a celebrated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Further into town, more cultural landmarks and historic structures await, such as the Domain of Montreuil, Le Potager du Roi, and the Church of Notre-Dame. Guests can also peruse through authentic local shops and restaurants that fill Versailles or visit one of the city’s many exciting museums.

Palace of Versailles
Visit the centerpiece of Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage site and former residence of the Kings of France. From the iconic Hall of Mirrors, where the German Empire was both formed and dismantled, to the extensive gardens designed for Louis XIV by André Le Nôtre, there is plenty for visitors to discover in this opulent palace. Dating back to the 17th century, this historic building should be at the top of every cultural traveler’s list.

The King’s Kitchen Garden (Le Potager du Roi)
Admire one of the greatest examples of a French garden at Le Potager du Roi. Created at the behest of Louis XIV, this garden was carefully arranged and designed to create microclimates and allow the growing of a wide variety of different fruits and vegetables. Listed as a historic monument in 1926, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and continues to function as a working vegetable garden today.

The Grand Trianon
Walk northwest of the palace to find the private retreat of King Louis XIV, the Grand Trianon. Built in 1687 and set within its own park, this red-marble chateau was used by the king as a retreat for himself and his second wife, the Marquise de Maintenon.

The Queen’s Hamlet
Stroll through the fascinating and idyllic village that was built for Marie Antoinette in 1783. Featuring a farmhouse, dairy, dovecote, boudoir, barn, mill, and tower, this artificial hamlet served as a place for the queen to escape palace life, and she would often pretend to be a simple peasant girl or meet with her close friends while there. The imagery of royalty adopting the trappings of a simple life enflamed the anger of the coming French Revolution.

Living Museum of the Horse (Les Grandes Écuries)
Tour the Living Museum of the Horse, which features over 1,200 works of art and has Europe’s largest collection of royal and imperial coaches. Les Grandes Écuries, the giant stables that were built in 1719 for Louis Henri, the Duke of Bourbon and Prince of Condé, now house the museum, which takes in hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.

Church of Notre-Dame, Versailles
Take a look at this beautiful church in Versailles, built alongside the rest of city in the late 17th century. King Louis XIV even intended for the site to function as his personal place of worship. Still an active church today, the French government designated the building as a national monument in 2005.

Marché Notre-Dame
Visit this marvelous open-air market, which serves delicious French cuisine at amazing prices. First conceived in 1634, the Marché Notre-Dame has supplied the community of Versailles with great local foods for more than five centuries.

Musée Lambinet

Originally built in 1751 for Madame de Montespan, Louis XIV’s famous mistress, the building has been a local municipal museum since 1932. Inside, guests will find wonderful exhibits displaying the City of Versailles’s remarkable story.

Golf
In France, golf has always been about leisure. Since the 19th century, the French have played golf more for personal relaxation than for competition. Guests residing at the Hôtel Le Louis can try this unique style for themselves by visiting one of the many fairways that populate the region. Le Golf National is a 20-minute drive from the hotel and is the facility where the French Golf Federation hosted the 2018 Ryder Cup.

It features three courses, two 18-hole and one 9-hole, and is sure to satisfy both beginners and experts alike.
