Versailles, located 10.6 miles from the centre of Paris, is the found in the Yvelines department in the Ile-de-France region of the country. A stay in a Versailles cottage is a stay in a town world-renowned for its château: the Palace of Versailles.

Versailles is one of France’s foremost tourist attractions - with its ornately decorated rooms and historic significance. Versailles, the town, also has other points of cultural notability; in recent times, its position as an affluent suburb of Paris has meant that it forms a part of the Paris artistic scene. Today its wealth means it remains an important administrative and judicial centre.
