The Estate of Trianon". en.chateauversailles.fr. Public Establishment of the Palace, Museum and National Estate of Versailles. 17 October 2016 . Retrieved 7 August 2021. To add insult to injury the writing was...disappointing. The language was clichéd and often cringey. The speech was unnatural and unrealistic. Lacaille, Frédéric (2012). Versailles – 400 ans d'histoire. Paris: Gallimard. ISBN 978-2-07-044430-4.

Palace of Versailles | palace, Versailles, France". Encyclopedia Britannica . Retrieved 28 August 2017. The palace is owned by the French Republic and since 1995 has been managed, under the direction of the French Ministry of Culture, by the Public Establishment of the Palace, Museum and National Estate of Versailles. [2] About 15,000,000 people visit the palace, park, or gardens of Versailles every year, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. [3]The author has provided a great cast for the story. From fusty academics, Dougie and Mary, to flamboyant designed Leo and social-media wannabe Fizz, they certainly are an eclectic mix and it is great fun getting to know each of the characters in turn. As the story flows, there are interesting changes in dynamic within the group as those characters find their place within their new household.

Spawforth, Antony (2008). Versailles: A Biography of a Palace. St. Martin's Press. ISBN 978-0-312-35785-6. The concept of moving house let alone moving to another country sounds like a massive headache, however the positive way in which this book is written would allow people to at least contemplate a move to a ‘better way of life’ where you could possibly live self sustainably or just be in a place where you can appreciate the culture more. This book is pure escapism for the soul. A Year in the Château is a Story about Friendship, moving on to a new chapter in life, taking chances, Drama, discovery and following your dreams. Bonney, Richard (June 2007). "Vindication of the Fronde? The cost of Louis XIV's Versailles building programme". French History. Oxford University Press. 21 (2): 205–22. doi: 10.1093/fh/crm004.Berger, Robert W. (1985). Versailles: The Château of Louis XIV. Penn State University Press. ISBN 0-271-00412-6. The French Revolution of 1830 brought a new monarch, Louis-Philippe to power, and a new ambition for Versailles. He did not reside at Versailles but began the creation of the Museum of the History of France, dedicated to "all the glories of France", which had been used to house some members of the royal family. The museum was begun in 1833 and inaugurated on 30 June 1837. Its most famous room is the Galerie des Batailles (Hall of Battles), which lies on most of the length of the second floor of the south wing. [120] The museum project largely came to a halt when Louis Philippe was overthrown in 1848, though the paintings of French heroes and great battles still remain in the south wing. I was expecting a book about a families first year at a chateau, the ins and out of renovating a chateau and maybe even a little history about the historic building. What I got instead was a recount of a narcissistic couple planning their wedding. I did not sign up for a book about wedding planning but literally over half this book is them talking about their wedding, the food for the wedding, the clothes for the wedding etc etc it does not stop and for a moment if they start talking about the chateau or renovating again the sentence will end with something along the lines of “ but that can wait.... we have a wedding to plan!” The Salon of Apollo was the royal throne room under Louis XIV, and was the setting for formal audiences. The eight-foot-high silver throne was melted down in 1689 to help pay the costs of an expensive war, and was replaced by a more modest throne of gilded wood. The central painting on the ceiling, by Charles de la Fosse, depicts the Sun Chariot of Apollo, the King's favorite emblem, pulled by four horses and surrounded by the four seasons.
