This is one of the buildings in the Hameau de la Reine (Queen's Hamlet) on the grounds of the Petit Trianon at Versailles.
Maison de la Reine (The Queen's House) was the biggest in the hamlet and consisted of a dining room and gaming room on the first floor whie upstairs there was a large salon, a small salon and a Chinese 'cabinet'. It was connected to the Billiards House by a wooden gallery decorated with white and blue earthenware pots bearing Marie-Antoinette's mongram.

Thanks for uploading some more of this interesting place - I will be certain to visit if I ever get back to Europe. You've done a nice job bringing us the Hameau. This one is no exception and you had a rare almost blue sky to help you out. I think the clouds add a degree of interest and let you utilize the even light across the subject. Great composition, too.
Have a nice Sunday,
