    I need to translate "Au coeur du parc et à deux pas du Châteu de Versailles".

    "In the heart of the Park of Versailles and very close to the famous Palace".

    I also have a doubt for "in the heart of"...:(

    I think your translation is fine. Other suggestions for 'à deux pas' might be

    - a short walk from

    Vous pouvez dire "At the heart of the Park of Versailles and just a stone's throw from the Chateau" or "Just a stone's throw from the Chateau of Versailles, at the heart of its Park".

    Incidentally, you don't "have a doubt for" but you are doubtful about ...
