Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Versailles
Elegant Versailles was transformed from the site of a royal hunting lodge into a sprawling monument by Louis XIV during the middle of the 17th century. The Parisian suburb is home to France’s famous grand palace, the Baroque-style Palace of Versailles. The former seat of France’s royal court, the château was the centre of influence from 1682 until the French Revolution of 1789. Enterprise provides a reliable and professional service from our central location, close to the main railway station and the palace.

Attractions in Versailles
Versailles’s main attraction is its world-famous château. The Palace of Versailles is a stunning building, rich in history, including serving as the site for the signing of a treaty that ended the fighting of the First World War. The sprawling grounds also include gardens and residential palaces. Other attractions in Versailles include the 19th-century Hôtel de Ville and the Cathédrale Saint-Louise. Northwest of the palace is the Grand Trianon Castle, a remarkable Italian-style pink marble building with French-style gardens.
Places to Visit Outside Versailles
Versailles can be a starting point to explore more of France, including Normandy and Brittany. Rouen is about 9 minutes north-west of Versailles. This vibrant city in Normandy is home to a beautiful medieval quarter and a towering Gothic cathedral that dates to the fourth century. Le Havre is about two hours away. The coastal city with its modern architecture has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your car also lets you reach closer destinations, including Paris. About an hour north-west of Versailles, via the A13, is Giverny, the village that served as an inspiration for many of Claude Monet’s paintings. The small village was a retreat for the famed impressionist painter, from 1883 until his death in 1926. Highlights include Monet’s House and the Musée des Impressionismes Giverny.
