The queen's grotto. This rock formation was made of quarried stone. During the summer months Marie Antoinette would hold private fetes here with "swimming" and dinners. The faux stone outcropping has water that spills from both sides of it.

The Queen’s Dairy was built for Queen Marie Antoinette by her husband Louis XVI. It’s a plain building from the outside but once inside you are in a vast rotunda where the tasting took place – all veined marble, sandstone walls and a grey and white floor to give a milky atmosphere.
