Self Catering Versailles Holiday Cottages and Gites, France

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 steeped in cultural and historical importance for France – it was the capital of the kingdom of France for over a century, from 1682 to 1789.

Today, when you rent a holiday home in Versailles, you’ll already know that its primary cultural attraction is the Palace. 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.

When youstay in Versailles self catering accommodation, you’ll realize that the palace isn’t just a building, but is a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime. Even today the palace still serves political functions. Historically Versailles is known for numerous treaties such as the Treaty of Paris (1783), which ended the American Revolutionary War and the Treaty of Versailles, which ended World War I.
