When you arrive in front of the imposing and magnificent Château de Versailles, you cannot imagine that behind this masterpiece is another, no less impressive. After crossing the huge wrought iron gate symbolizing the entrance to the Sun King’s domain, you take a small alley to the left of the main courtyard to access the gardens.
Entrance is free and from the first steps in the white gravel paths bordered by cypresses, visitors fall under the calm charm of this hundreds-years-old work. It was Louis XIV who in 1661 commissioned one of the greatest architects of the time, Le Nôtre, to imagine gardens in the image of his omnipotence. André Le Nôtre decided that these gardens should represent the victory of Man over Nature, the victory of the King of Kings over all. He therefore designed gardens filled with the rarest trees, the most delicate flowers and the most beautiful sculptures.
Throughout the centuries, the personnel of the Château de Versailles have maintained this island of French beauty. This fusion of Art and Nature is expressed beyond the choice of plant essences, it is expressed in the very layout of the gardens. Symmetrical, straight and sharp. Nothing is left to chance in the Sun King’s world, the groves are perfectly cut, the sculptures evenly spaced along huge aisles. Nature is domesticated so that Art is fully expressed through it.
We cannot talk about the Gardens of the Palace of Versailles without talking about its famous pools and fountains. After the earth it is here that water is used to create enchanting spaces mixing aquatic architecture, musical art and natural beauty.
