The Other Versailles: France’s Château de Groussay

Originally owned by the daughter of Marie Antoinette’s governess, the Château de Groussay is a hidden architectural gem located just outside Paris. Built in 1815, it remained a family home until it was modified in the 1930s. Inside, the Château is equipped with a Baroque-style theatre, a painted metal pavilion decked out with 10,000 Delft tiles, and an elaborate library that served as the inspiration for Henry Higgins’ home in “My Fair Lady.” A trip to this outpost of French history is a journey back in time.
