You can now sleep surrounded by the 18th-century opulence of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI.
For the first time in its 387-year history, the Palace of Versailles has opened a luxury hotel. Airelles Château de Versailles, Le Grand Contrôle offers 14 regal rooms and suites and one signature suite, all designed by architect Christophe Tollemer. Period furniture, plush fabrics, crystal chandeliers and old-fashioned clawfoot bathtubs make guests feel like royalty.
Guests will have full access to the palace’s famous grounds and surrounding areas, including spaces usually closed to visitors. They’ll also enjoy dinners prepared by Michelin-starred French chef Alain Ducasse at the hotel restaurant, a spa and an indoor swimming pool.
