It was a little cloudy out today but we decided to go out and visit the Bagatelle gardens. It was so beautiful I took over one hundred pictures. I have decided to break my post on Bagatelle into several sections rather than one long post. This post is the charming little restaurant located on the grounds. Marie-Antoinette waged that the Count of Artois, who had bought this property in 1775, could not turn it into a serviceable property in 64 days. Belanger designed the house and Thomas Blaikie built the gardens, to the day’s in-vogue anglo-chinois taste. Bagatelle park and chateau only barely eluded obliteration during the Revolution, but a string of owners altered them considerably. The orangerie, gates and stables date back to 1835, and the guard’s lodgings were built in 1870, along with the Trianon and the two terraces. The restaurant is in the old stables.
