Architecture of the Week: Versailles
I mean. C’mon, it’s Versailles. In this special episode of OpenHouse, they bring us two exclusive home tours from Paris, France. They spent the day in Versailles and were able to tour through rooms and spaces generally closed to the public. They were given access to the dressing room of Louis XVI and the living quarters of Madame De Pompadour, the mistress of King Louis XV.
They have unprecedented footage of some of Versailles most famous rooms, including the renowned Hall of Mirrors. They also toured Chateau de Courances, a storied castle-like home about an hour outside of Paris, known for having one of the grandest gardens in France.
