An enchanting location for a journey through time: the Fountains at Versailles
Published on Friday, 24 july 2015 in Hotel
While summer is in full swing and the sun is riding high to bring you the most beautiful weather, your Hotel les Bulles de Paris offers a suggestion for an enchanting evening. You can enjoy some of the loveliest and most stirring entertainment to be found in the Paris area when you attend the evening fountains show called the Grandes Eaux in Versailles.
Birth of the gardens
It was André Le Nôtre, landscape architect and principal gardener to the court of King Louis XIV, who in 1662 began creating the Gardens of Versailles. With the help of the Francinis, a Florentine dynasty of hydraulic engineers, the work was completed four years later. The first Grandes Eaux in Versailles were inaugurated in 1666, but it was not until the early nineteenth century that they were first accompanied by music.
Spectacle of the Grandes Eaux in Versailles
During your stay with us at the Hotel les Bulles de Paris you must not miss the spectacle of the Grandes Eaux in Versailles. You will thrill to this 2 ½ hour magical experience that takes place every Saturday evening amidst the sumptuous gardens of the Palace of Versailles, taking you back in time to the glory days of the Sun King. Fountains, pools and groves are wonderfully and evocatively lit and brim with enchantment. Water effects, splendid period music and perhaps the loveliest gardens in the world await you, on an evening climaxed by a dazzling fireworks display high above the Grand Canal. This spectacle, imagined and implemented by true artists of scenography and light, promises an unforgettable evening.
And after such emotion, magic and enchantment, the Bulles team will welcome you for a sweet, sparkling night. Make your reservations !
