Jardin du Petit Trianon


Another view of the French pavilion that I was showing you yesterday. Turn around and you see the Petit Trianon castle (here on the left). Those interested by a visit of the castle can click on the 'Petit Trianon' label below.

Oh my gosh, this is incredibly beautiful and indeed "petit". Your pictures are gorgeous. I'd agree, 40 people is small, but I think that's what makes it so charming. I'm not the type of American with the bigger the better philosophy:)

And no, Lucky Wishbone is not the fish & chips w/malt vinegar like GB. I wish! Then I would go there willingly! More like chicken and coke!

It has been several years since I last visited the palace and grounds but I certainly remember the lines of trees pruned to look like box hedges. They are just so elegant.

It's so lovely that I would be afraid to touch anything. Wonderful photo.

I love the elegance of the Petit Trianon. It's more accessible than the Grand Palais de Versailles. I can understand why Marie Antoinette liked spending time there.

I know it's quite different but this place reminds me of Bagateele, in the Bois de Boulogne...

Looks like a set from one of those BBC classics. Lovely..

C'est très joli, mais trop bien rangé pour moi; Perso, Je préfère les jardins sauvages, en fouillis, qui partent dans tous les sens..

Merci pour ce tour de propriétaire.

Not your 'typical' castle however, it's stunning. I checked your tag and you have a great collection. I'd go crazy photographing here!

I think that is the most beautiful garden and lovely blue sky I have ever seen.
