Grand Trianon

This pink marble place has one of the most beautiful furnishings. A single story building with Italian design influences and surrounded by French gardens. Louis XIV occupied the Grand Trianon, where he also housed his sister-in-law the Princess Palatine, his son-in-law the duc de Chartres and his daughter the duchesse de Bourbon.

Marie-Antoinette gave several performances here but preferred the Petit Trianon, which Louis XVI had given her as a present. Napoleon lived at Trianon with his second wife and the building has been used to host several French presidents before.
