A bucolic landscaping of the Trianon gardens, the Hameau de la Reine is an integral part of the Domaine de Marie-Antoinette. Timeless, far from the tumult of the Palace, this place exalts the imagination.
In 1783, Marie-Antoinette ordered her architect Richard Mique, the construction of this magnificent set of factories. It was completed in 1786 along an artificial pond. Despite the fact that rural architecture is borrowed from various streams, this place gives the impression of a great unity.

It was for Queen Marie Antoinette a place of receptions and walk. This small rural village consisted of pleasure buildings: the mill which was only a decoration, the boudoir, the house of the Queen ... but also houses for the farm which was also to play a teaching role.

The weather-damaged farmhouse was restored in 2006 and is now occupied by the Animal Assistance Foundation.

Access to the Queen's Hamlet is via the entrance to one of the two Trianons.
