The Palace is magnificent, with features such as the Hall of Mirrors. It is a match for anything in the UK. But the true jewel is the Gardens. The Gardens are 800 hectares in size with over 200,000 trees. I could have spent days and days there. There are 50 fountains and 23 hectares of water in the main canal.
This is at the top of the gardens. You need a full day to properly get around the gardens as there are scores of things to see. You can also hire a bike or even a boat to get around!

This is a section of the grounds at the far end from the palace where Marie Antionette used to live in the Petit Trianon. It’s been restored as a wonderfully tranquil hamlet. Probably the most beautiful part of the Gardens.
Fish galore. You could probably jump in and grab a dozen!

They also had a small farm there with goats, pigs, roosters, and of course donkeys!

It really is a wonderful place. Anyone visiting France should look around it.
