Following three years of meticulous renovation and refurnishing by the Dior foundation, two buildings gifted to Marie-Antoinette – the “Queen’s House” and the Réchauffoir (where dishes were warmed before being served at the royal table) – reopen to the public this summer. For the first time in two centuries you can walk into the Queen’s Hamlet at the Château de Versailles.

The interior of the Queen’s House has been refurnished in the oldest documented style. The interior restoration was overseen by Jacques Moulin, Chief Architect for French historical monuments, along with Jérémie Benoît, the head curator of the Château de Versailles.
