The Petit Trianon (which literally means little Trianon, named such because it is located next to the Grand Trianon), is a château made on the gardens of the Palace of Versailles. Its construction was completed in 1768, and it was made on the orders of Louis XV. Like the Grand Trianon, the reason of construction of this place was also the king’s mistress. To be specific, it was made for Madame de Pompadour, who was the official mistress of the king. She died before its construction could be completed, and after completion the château became the home of her successor, Madame du Barry, who was the last mistress of the king. There are plenty of things to do in Petit Trianon, and the design of the château is very interesting indeed. It was explicitly made so that the royals could have their fun, without needing to be formal at all. Marie Antoinette was known to come to the Petit Trianon a lot, because she found the court to be boring. The servants couldn't even mingle with the royals, which allowed the royals to act upon all their whims. The food, for example, was put on the table on a lower floor, which was then raised to the floor the royals were sitting waiting for food. You will find lots of interesting things to do in Château de Versailles, which is a why you should plan a visit today.
