Une extraordinaire réserve d'actifs oubliés
Le Potager du Roi
The King's Kitchen Garden at Versailles
Built between 1678 and 1683 by Jean-Baptiste de La Quintinie, the Potager du Roi is a masterpiece of French garden design from the Baroque period.
This French garden, with its great diversity of fruits and vegetables, once fed the table of Louis XIV.
With its 9 hectares in the heart of Versailles, it has been, since its creation, a model of the evolution of agricultural and food practices in an urban environment.
An Amazing Garden
Classified as a historic monument and a remarkable garden, it is an integral part of the Château de Versailles estate, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the historic site of the École Nationale Supérieure de Paysage, which today pursues an environmentally friendly production activity based on short circuits.
INNOVATION AND HIGH QUALITY
The mission entrusted to Jean-Baptiste La Quintinie is still relevant today: to feed and innovate.
To feed by offering quality fruit and vegetables. To innovate by developing agro-ecological techniques.
Nourishing the body, nourishing the skin, innovating in the service of mankind while respecting nature, this is what summarises this exceptional garden.
