Tourism in the Yvelines is strongly influenced by the presence of the sublime Château de Versailles, residence of the Kings of France Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI, and its magnificent park where you can admire the Petit Trianon and the Grand Trianon, the Queen's Hamlet, as well as the French gardens of the Château de Versailles designed by André Le Nôtre. The park also includes the Trianons gardens, including Marie-Antoinette's Anglo-Chinese style garden, the king's vegetable garden and two large bodies of water: the Grand Canalet, the Swiss water body. This destination has a rich historical, architectural and artistic heritage, as evidenced by its castles, abbeys and royal cities, the Yvelines department can also boast of having a vast preserved natural area. Its 70,000 hectares of forests, criss-crossed by multiple hiking trails, and its beautiful parks and gardens are all assets that delight walkers and outdoor recreation enthusiasts. A beautiful program in prospect!
