You can't get much happier than this wooly or Mangalica pet pig living in the Queen's Hamlet on the grounds of the Château de Versailles and having fresh baguette and vegetables for lunch. The Queen's Hamlet, or l'Hameau de la Reine is the rustic farm village that Marie-Antoinette ordered to be constructed as a refuge from the rigid ceremonial constraints of royal court life. A caricature of a functioning farm, the idyllic decor was a rural paradise for the young queen.
