I have already been to the ” Chateaux de Versailles ” many years ago, but I didn’t have the time to go to the outside back area of the Palace, in the garden area…as a matter of fact, I remembered glancing through the windows, and really never thinking much about it. Boy, I was so wrong !!
Can you see me and Madonna around so much beauty?

So, this week while back in Paris, I decided to go and witness ” The Musical Fountains Show ” (Les Grandes Eaux) at the grand French-style formal gardens and park of Versailles designed by André Le Nôtre. You can only witness this show on Saturdays and Sundays, some Tuesdays and some extra holiday dates, and on the weekends the fountains are activated from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 3:30 to 5:00 pm, and if I am not mistaken not all are on at the same time. The most glorious one is the Neptune Fountain, you can only see it in full force from 5:20 to 5:30 pm; it is so amazing it deserves a FreakChic post of its own . Even if you can’t see all the fountains, there are so much to explore since there are a lot of temporary art installations also available , it is indeed a feast for the eye (see photos below).
I do really advise you that when in Paris, do take the 40 mins train ride to Versailles and visually indulge yourself…I have to go back so that I can also explore the Palaces of Trianon and Marie-Antoinette’s estate…so much to see…oh Mon Dieu !
