Tiny House in France So, Versailles is a monstrously huge place. I'm not sure how you could see everything in a day. I chose to concentrate this trip out in the royal gardens, and a confusing walk got me into this place. It's not exactly secret, but I didn't know about it until I walked up upon it! It is called "The Hameau de la Reine", and is generally known as the Queen's Hamlet. It was built for Marie Antoinette between 1785 and 1792.
