Loving Theadora’s posts at the moment. Coincidentally, she has been writing about places we’re planning to visit this year and the extra information is so great as it’s information that I wouldn’t find in guidebooks, etc. Be sure to check out her previous post as well for information on Fragonard and Galimard and her older posts on shopping in Paris. Love…

Whenever I need to get far away from the hustle and bustle of Paris, I trek it to Le Domaine de Marie-Antoinette. Nestled behind Château du Versailles is a palace called “Le Petit Trianon,” along with a dreamy little hamlet created for the Queen. It’s the perfect spot for some tranquility, introspection, and splendor in the grass.
Bewitching with its seductive cave, mystic temples, a tiny village (surrounded by farm animals and vegetable plots) and placid lake (complete with island and lighthouse), it’s no surprise that the countryside in miniature was Marie Antoinette’s favorite retreat from the very public and frenetic life she led back up at the main Château.
