Rooms sleep 2


Classy Versailles paid dearly for being a place of privilege in 1789; nowadays no-one will begrudge you your share. Off the busy avenue that leads to the palace, go through a dark porch into a bare yard then up steps to a total surprise: a bird-filled garden of lawn, trees and roses where an 18th-century ‘orangery’, a miniature Marie-Antoinette Trianon, houses two peaceful little luxury flats. Properly arched windows light a modern plush sofa standing on beautiful new Versailles parquet flanked by a couple of Louis XV armchairs. The tiny, cosy kitchen is fine for a short stay (and there are plenty of eateries to walk to), the marble bathroom is high-luxe, the mezzanine bedroom generously comfortable. One flat has a strong fuchsia-flashed colour scheme, the other is soberly wine-red and almond – a question of taste or mood. Two couples can easily share the terrace, the garden has several separate corners. Patricia, your lively and intelligent host, is widely travelled, multilingual and loves chatting with guests. Her charming housekeeper Alexandrina replaces her when necessary. Extraordinarily civilised.

Two lovely self contained units at the far end of an elevated garden - well equipped and wonderfully peaceful. Location couldn’t be better: ten minute walk to railway station and palace; and very easy to find. Patricia is a very thoughtful and knowledgeable host - her tips for restaurants were spot on. Well worth spending a few days here - the town has a vibrant market and plenty of interesting shops....it’s all so grand!

Local points of interest from Patricia White-Palacio

  • Ideally located within walking distance from the Sun King’s Palace of Versaille's, l’Orangerie is set independently amongst a secretive garden.
  • l'Orangerie is an XVIII century unique greenhouse, restored and converted into two suites entirely independent from our home but we are always present to provide our guests with any request or enquiries they should have.
  • Each suite has at your disposal: tea, coffee, milk, sugar, a sound system, TV, wifi, etc.
  • L’Orangerie is located near train stations, shops, restaurant, Gil and Martine the "bar-restaurant" across the road will make you feel like a Versaillais!
  • Choose from several cinemas, an Olympic size pool, golf courses, an equestrian club The food market which is one of the most acclaimed in France by awarded chefs for its diversity and heritage.
  • Please have a look at www.thebutterflies.e-monsite.com - your holiday apartment in the centre of the beautiful city of Nice on the Cote D'azur!
