The final point of a route is "Village of the Queen". It was constructed for Maria-Antoinette in the English-Chinese style - with lakes, grottoes and twisting streams. The idea of this "village" was connected with Russo's appeal "returning to the nature". There are twelve small houses, dairy and cattle-breeding farms, a dovecot and a mill in the village. They have straw roofs.
