Continuing our tour of Versailles through my lens today. Once we left the main palace I was again left speechless at the sheer mass of the grounds. We explored the the main fountains and then rented bicycles to explore (they also had golf carts & segways you could rent). We soon arrived at Marie-Antoinette’s estate aka ‘The Queens Residence’. This alone was another “mini” palace where I learned (thanks to Kosta) she spent most of her time and rarely went to the main palace. Like the palace everything wad dripped in gold…I can’t say I minded one bit. One detail I couldn’t get enough of was the tassel’s on all the chandeliers in the estate (don’t you love?)
Marie was a big Billiards Fan & she had her own in her estate
The room above in particular was a favourite of mine

We grabbed a quick lunch picnic style and Kosta continued to give me history lessons…(love him)
Stay tuned for part three coming soon…
Lots of love
Let’s stay connected!
