When we came down the hill from the chateau at Versailles it was so beautiful, the water and the trees, so amazing and so vast. I was really amazed by the size of the entire place and the gardens.
They have an area where you can rent row boats, which was so fun (the girls were down with it) and a great picnic space. Which I will do next time for sure!
There were the most beautiful swans nesting right on the dock, which I have never seen them nest anywhere! So so cool.. She was so proud and her nest was made of huge sticks which she kept adjusting.
If I was going to go again I would go outside and do the gardens first and then go back to the chateau and take the tour to avoid the crowds. I loved it there it was so romantic and so different from anything here at home.
