Marie Antoinette’s Sovereign Sanctuary

Marie Antoinette's Sovereign Sanctuary

Built around a small lake, the sprinkling of bucolic cottages combined French, Flemish, and Norman architectural styles, and as it was a functioning farm, included a barn, a working dairy, and a dovecote. It was not unusual to spot a carefree Marie, casually dressed in peasant’s clothing, ambling about the pastoral grounds with her children to teach them about the natural world. Now fully restored and open to the public, the hamlet gives visitors a glimpse of this lesser-known aspect of her life.
