The Petit Trianon is the place where the King could spend some relaxing time close to his French Gardens.
It is a neoclassical château in the middle of the gardens with Greek-style columns and windows. Very closed to the gardens, from there the King could easily reach the grounds and develop his interest for botany.
Like the other two buildings of the Estate of the Trianon, it was built in an attempt to gain brief respite from the royal court etiquette.
Recently restored, there you can find the way the King used to deal with his two passions: on the one hand, botany; in the other hand, his mistresses.
