My favorite part of Versailles is the Queen's Hamlet (Hameau de la Reine). I can imagine myself living here in the 18th century. The architecture, lake, farmlands and gardens are beautiful beyond words! I absolutely love Marlborough tower, styled in the form of a lighthouse, which has such beautiful colors and flower incorporated within.
It was actually quite neat to walk around the Queen's Hamlet and look at the various gardens which still grow fruits and vegetables such as grapes, rhubarb and peppers.
