    More than just a fancy, gilded French palace

    That's right, Versailles has a lot more to offer visitors than its wildly popular and insanely impressive Chateau de Versailles, where Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette lived the high life before meeting their unfortunate end. There are the exquisite parks and gardens surrounding the palace, adjacent palaces where the royals took a break from life at court, and the city of Versailles itself, with its charming shops and cafes. A Versailles vacation rental is an ideal home base, close to Paris and even closer to all the sights surrounding the most famous palace in France.

    Guided tours make this magnificent place more manageable

    Of course, the most fabulous activities to enjoy near your Versailles vacation rental are tours of the Palace of Versailles. Audio guides are available in several languages, or you can take a guided tour by a local expert. Overwhelmed by the prospect of taking in the palace grounds on foot? You're not alone. In summer, bike rentals and a mini-train make things a little easier. If you ever manage to get your fill of the palace, you can walk into town, peek into the upscale shops, or load up at a mom-and-pop grocery store and have an afternoon picnic.

    Imagine royal life, framed in gold and with horses to spare

    Listing the sights in Versailles is a bit like listing all the French pastries you want to try—you might be here all night. Of course, there's the palace itself, built in the 17th century for King Louis XIV and full of frescoes, marble, and gilt decor. Then, there's the park with its stunning formal gardens and 2 (yes 2) more palaces, smaller but equally worth a visit. Chateaus not your thing? You can take a break at the Academie du Spectacle Equestre, or "Big Stables," where visitors can watch horses and riders train.

    April showers bring May flowers to a castle's gardens

    Versailles enjoys 4 distinct seasons, and vacationers appreciate the sunshine and warm weather in summer, when temps are in the 70s and rain is less frequent. Spring and fall can be overcast and wet, but that doesn't make the palace interior any less luxurious. Just remember to bring an umbrella. Winter chill brings temperatures down the 40s and 50s, and the crowds at the city's most famous sights thin out. If you book a Versailles vacation rental in the colder months, you'll get a crack at lower prices and shorter lines.

    No need to walk on the wild side in this precise paradise

    The natural life found around the Chateau de Versailles is meticulously maintained. The park and gardens are known for their geometrically aligned flowerbeds and pristine tree-lined paths. For those who prefer something a little wilder (but still well-cared-for), visit the English-style Jardins du Petit Trianon. They have the feel of the English countryside and feature leafy, winding paths. Just outside the city are parks less palatial, like Haute Vallee de Chevreuse Natural Regional Park and the Foret Domaniale de Meudon (Meudon Forest). These offer walking and hiking paths and excellent bird watching.
