The Queen’s Hamlet is a palace disguised as a peasant’s cottage hidden in the Versailles gardens. A romantic hideaway, Marie-Antoinette conceived it as a reminder of her carefree youth in Vienna. But the Revolution left it for ruin. Now, two centuries later, the most extensive renovation ever finally begins. In summer 2017, the Queen’s Hamlet was reopened to the public, restored to its original glory, one of the most extraordinary and moving architectural jewels of Versailles. Produced by ZED & NHK for ARTE France. Directed by Sylvie Faiveley and Mark Daniels.
