Private Visit of King Louis XV and XVI’s private Apartment at Chateau Versailles | Versailles, France | Many of us have been to Chateau Versailles countless times, at least I have, but how many of you have had the chance, to separate from the crowd, to visit the former private quarters of King Louis XV and XVI. During my recent visit, I was able to do so, on a private tour. Below are all my photos of my visit, plus some more of the Chateau Versailles itself. Read my previous posts on Chateau Versailles and Ville Versailles. Contact me if you would like to book this exclusive tour, same as my experience at Cathedral of Notre Dame. Hope you enjoy this post.
After becoming king in 1715, the young Louis XV, known as the “Beloved”, decided in 1722 to reinstall the government and court in the Château de Versailles, abandoned since the death of Louis XIV. Crowned at Reims in 1722, Louis XV then reinstalled the government and the court at Versailles, abandoned by the state since the death of Louis XIV. While he re-used the apartments of the king for the state functions, he had his own private quarters, designed by the architect Gabriel, where he took refuge from the crowds and the pomp and ceremony of court life.
To visit the private apartments, you must be accompanied by one of Versailles’s own guides, and there are security guards everywhere.
