The old chateau of Versailles

In 1623, Louis XIII, father of Louis XIV the Sun King (Roi Soleil) built a hunting lodge in Versailles, a small castle for gentlemen. He enjoyed staying in Versailles so much; he decided to have the building rebuilt by the architect Philibert le Roy. The buildings around the courtyard are the old chateau of Versailles. From 1661 to 1668, Le Vau, Louis XIV s architect continued to embellish the chateau. The old chateau was considered too narrow, an extension was called for!
 

The new chateau of Versailles

Between 1668 & 1670 Louis le Vau took charge of the new construction. The enveloppe of Le Vau consists of a white stone fronted building which circles the old chateau the eveloppe of le Vau. The central terrace of the new chateau was inspired by the Italian Baroques Villa style. After the death of Le Vau in 1670, Francois d Orbay continued the project. The Grands Appartements are housed here.

Merci!

"When you took us to Versailles Chateau and to the Louvre and for our lunch date at the Eiffel Tower -- you had us into all three of those hugely popular places by special entrances within 15 minutes! Even though the general public lines were hundreds and hundreds of people long in all three places! We would have stood there for HOURS if we had tried to get in on our own. Again, John, it was the mark of a real pro knowing where to go and how to take care of your customers!"

  • In the early days of Versailles, fountain guards were ordered to whistle when Louis XIV approached, so that the fountains could be turned on.
  • Pineapple & coffee beans were grown in the vegetable garden
  • Louis XV ordered mechanical tables for the dining rooms in the Petit Trianon. They were designed to rise completely set, and served from the kitchens below. The tables were never built, but the foundations for the mechanisms still exist in the cellar.
  • the first hot air balloon was launched from Versailles in 1783
  • a secret passage ran from the queen's private cabinets to those of the king. It enabled Marie-Antoinette to escape revolutionary rioters in October 1789
  • the garden facade of the central part of the chateau is architecturally deceptive, because there are no rooms behind the windows on the top floor, they give onto the structural supports for the ceiling of the Hall of Mirrors
