Description

This exclusive private tour allows you access to prohibited places to the public: porcelain dining room, post-hunting room, Louis XV’s bedchamber, clock room, library, XVIIIe century bathroom, royal opera and/or chapel, etc.

After his state apartments, Louis XIV created a suite of rooms designed for more personal use, which opened onto the Marble Courtyard and the Royal Courtyard. Louis XV made many changes and extended the apartment to the upper floors, creating new rooms, work cabinets, dining rooms, libraries, scientific galleries, and laboratories. These apartments allowed the king to enjoy a certain amount of privacy. The space was also used by Louis XVI, who in turn adapted it to his own purposes.
