The Petit Trianon, Versailles

Marie Antoinette
The Petit Trianon is hidden but important part of Versailles. This small Palace is simple and cozy and looks prettier unlike the main Palace of Versailles. Basically this place is associated with Marie Antoinette who breathed new life into it and gave a special charm.

    Beautiful pictures! I’m a French teacher and author. French history and language are my passion. I’m working on a trilogy that is called The Secrets of Versailles.

    Beautiful shots and great information. It’s great to see such passionate interest in French culture. I am a French teacher who has taught various eras of French history for many years. I would love to guest write an article for your blog about the Versailles and Louis XIV if you are interested. There would be no charge, but I would just insert a small blurb at the end about my book on Versailles that will be published this fall. Thanks!

    • Sorry for the late response. Thank you for your offer. Unfortunately I cannot accept it. My blog is just a small drop in the blogosphere ocean with really small traffic. I am not sure it can help to promote your interesting book. It is place for my own impressions and thoughts.

  8. Beautiful images, Alexander. As I viewed them I tried to imagine what it was like to live at that time surrounded by such eloquence. ❤

    • My understanding is that for royalties the life was pretty good for the others not really. However all these attractions are beautiful and worth to see.
