The Sybarite is pleased to present this rare experience of accessing Versailles completely on your own together with your guests.

For those who have always been eager to visit this wonderment in private, we are now offering you the opportunity to do so through this Versailles to Yourself Experience for up to six persons.

One can expect to visit the ‘Galerie des Glaces’, the Palace of Versailles, which was the former home of Louis XIV, in absolute privacy. Once visitors have left and its doors are closed to the public, you'll be able to visit the castle of the Sun King before making your way to Marie Antoinette's apartment.  Expect to have cocktails in the Grand Trianon (Cotelle wing) with a theatrical performance in the Royal 6 Opera or the Great Stables, before finally visiting the Queen’s house in the Hamlet.

This is a wonderful and unique chance to stroll through the apartments of this world- famous palace, which has been on UNESCO’s World Heritage list for 30 years.

About

The history of Versailles is inextricably linked with the figure of Louis XIV. Although the location existed for centuries before the sovereign, Louis XIV developed a genuine liking for Versailles early on, and decided to extend it beyond the chateau that had grown out of the hunting lodge of brick and stone first built by his father. The King, who could see great things for the chateau and the forests around it, took on the role of architect himself, and built a masterpiece with which he would forever be associated.

Born in Versailles like his grandfather, Louis XVI became king before the age of twenty. The celebration of his marriage to the Archduchess of Austria Marie-Antoinette in 1770 at the Royal Opera House was one of the greatest events to take place in Versailles in the late 18th century. Unlike his grandfather, Louis XVI spent most of his time in Versailles, where he embarked on several projects for the interior, while devoting himself – in his private chambers – to studying various sciences that he particularly liked. He was very fond of his wife and in 1774 he offered her the Petit Trianon, built by Louis XV for Mme de Pompadour and first lived in by Mme du Barry, and Marie-Antoinette made it her private domain. A shy but studious king, Louis XVI was interested in international politics and played an important role in the War of American Independence.
