For anyone who wants to feel like a modern day Marie Antoinette
The Palace of Versailles has long served as a popular tourist attraction, but a new luxury hotel set in its lavish grounds means visitors will now be able to stay there.
Airelles Château de Versailles will open in spring 2020 – the first hotel to have a home within the perimeters of the Palace grounds. The 14-bedroom property will be designed in an 18th Century style, with architect and interior designer Christophe Tollemer in charge of its aesthetic.
Although few details have been released about the hotel, it will boast a private spa and a restaurant led by Alain Ducasse, who is one of only two chefs to hold 21 Michelin stars throughout his career. Guests will also enjoy exclusive access and experiences at Chateau de Versailles.
Luxury hotel group Airelles owns a number of properties around France, although its Versailles opening is expected to be the jewel in its crown and one of the most anticipated travel launches of 2020.
