The Boudoir

Marie Antoinette would use this adorable little cottage to sleep in when she stayed at her hamlet overnight; this use gave the cottage the name of the Boudoir or "the Queen's little house". There are only two rooms in this cottage: a bedroom and a wardrobe. Occasionally, Marie would invite one of her friends (females only) to stay there with her. The cottage even has its' own little garden. Besides a few minor alterations during the Second Empire the cottage is the same as in 1789.
