Revered the world over for its magnificent gardens, the spellbinding golden light of the Hall of Mirrors and tales of Marie Antoinette’s decadent parties, Château de Versailles is one of France’s most important contributions to world architecture and art.
And now, thanks to the transformation of a 1681 building in the palace grounds into a boutique hotel, Le Grand Contrôle, you can experience Versailles like never before. From strolls in its famous orangery and cosseting Valmont spa treatments to the gourmet
French classics served up in the Alain Ducasse restaurant, indulgent experiences abound. And, of course, the spirit of Marie Antoinette is never far away: a private tour of Trianon, the ill-fated queen’s bucolic estate, can be arranged and guests can also play
dress up in the lavish costumes used in the production of the TV series, Versailles. Ooh la la! Airelles.com – P.S.
