Explore Versailles

Built for Louis XIV, the 17th century château is an awesome architectural feature. Though considered by many to be somewhat gaudy and overstated, viewers cannot help but admire the grand scale and magnificence of the complex. Visitors will come across 4 main entrances to the palace, where they can take guided tours of the chateau or explore the rooms and exhibits on their own.

Entrance A - Takes visitors to the Grand Apartments only.
Entrance B - Only for groups who have pre-booked.
Entrance C - Provides access to Louis XIV's apartments, the Dauphin and its apartments, and the Hall of Mirrors.
Entrance D - A range of guided tours are organised here.

The château was constructed over 51 years, from 1664 to 1715, and, with the exception of a few years after Louis XIV’s death, was the residence of the French royal family until the Revolution of 1789. It was neglected for many years, and is now in pristine condition thanks to the numerous restoration efforts of both the 19th and 20th centuries.

The other premier attraction of Versailles is the château's superb park. Covering four square kilometers, the palace grounds near the château consist of symmetrical gardens with fountains. The park loses its formality the further you wander away from the palace, and there are numerous tranquil sections to spend a relaxing morning or afternoon, including Grand Trianon, Petit Trianon, and Le Hameau de Marie-Antoinette. There are shuttle services running through the park and you can row around the Grande Canal in rented boats.

Near the park entrance stands the Hôtel Palais Trianon, where the final negotiations for the Treaty of Versailles took place. It is an extremely popular place to lunch, dine, or to just have refreshing drinks after a stroll through the park.

There are a number of attractive destinations nearby that make for rewarding day trips. Examples of these are Fontainebleau, Chantilly, the cathedral of Chartres and the Basilica of St-Denis.

Transport

Versailles can easily be reached by shuttle services operating out of Paris' Charles de Gaulle International Airport, which caters to direct flights from most world cities. Travellers can also opt for buses, taxis, trains or car rentals from outside of the airport's main terminal building.

There are plenty of car rental companies operating at the airport, these include; Avis, Enterprise, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Firefly, TT car transit and Sixt. Book car hire in Versailles online in advance with us and we'll find you cheaper prices and a larger selection of cars to choose from by comparing the market.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
