The Gardens of Versailles

A walk in the park is a fairly romantic thing to do, and there are quite a few gardens and parks around Paris perfect for such endeavour. However, if you want a walk somewhere unforgettable but still easily accessible, you can’t beat the beautiful setting of the Gardens of Versailles.

Garden of Versailles

There is a certain grandeur that’s unrivalled at Versailles. The formal garden of its l’Orangerie, the classic French gardens and occasional labyrinths, and the bosquets lining the basins and the grand canal – all the elements that evoke timeless admiration of the beauty that lies before one’s eyes. Judge it yourself, although note that these photos were taken at different times of the year. (Hint: it’s good to visit it multiple times throughout the year)

Not long after F and I met, one of the walks we did was out in Versailles. It was a cold but sunny winter afternoon, which weaved its own brand of magic, putting us much at ease with each other despite all kind of jitters felt. We strolled along the bosquets and chatted about a whole lot of let’s-get-to-know-each-other-better kind of information, later sat by a bench next to the canal to watch the world went by and the subsequent start to the sunset, before making our way back to Paris again.

Nowadays, we are more likely to have our walk at the Luxembourg Garden than the Gardens of Versailles, but the memory of the latter would always be just that little bit more special. Writing makes me think we should organise another trip out there soon. :)
