The lovely Orangerie building was designed by Mansart in the 1680s, surrounded by ordered walkways and patterned parterre gardens.

Citrus trees were stored here over winter, and today some of the lemon and pomegranate trees are more than 200 years old.

The Orangerie’s row of arched windows look onto a circular pool and lines of potted trees, including palms, oleanders and orange trees. The statues that once decorated the walkways are now in the Louvre Museum in Paris.

Practical Info

The west wing of the Palace of Versailles looks onto the Orangerie, between the South Parterre and the Swiss Lake.

You can sneak a lovely view of the Orangerie from the windows lining the Queen’s Grand Apartment rooms.
