Airelles Chateau de Versailles : A royal stay!

Room for thought ‘Life responds to the way you think and live’

When you enter the Grand Contrôle, a former private home built by Louis XIV’S, favorite architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart you can’t help to wonder how it is to live in a royal palace.

With its 11 rooms and 2 signature suites, all restored with the utmost respect to the original building with authenticity and refinement it gives you a feeling of wellbeing and serenity and an experience as close as it gets to a royal one.

It feels like a journey to another era staying right next the Chateau de Versailles and immerse in the history of the place and its beautiful 800-hectare gardens.

The gourmet creations in the fine-dining restaurant by Alain Ducasse seduce you while the afternoon tea experience delight you with fine delicacies made by the pastry chef.

An array of experiences await at the Valont spa, a true haven of relaxation and luxury where the signature ‘sun king’ massage made me lose track of time!

There is something for everyone so kids can also enjoy themselves at the Airelles camp for kids where they can ride a pony at the Versailles gardens or participate at the traditional Easter Egg hunt.

There are a few experiences that are not to be missed like an exclusive tour of the chateau, a journey at the world’s perfume archive and a picnic chic far away from the crowds.

And if you are planning an event, it is difficult to imagine a more idyllic setting than the high-end property rentals offered at the Airelles gardens and beyond.

A true iconic place where nothing is left to chance,

With gratitude, T.

Saint James : The only chateau -hotel in Paris!

A prestige hotel in a park in the heart of Paris, a great restaurant with terrace and a Private Club? The Saint James Paris is all those things, and much more! Part chateau, part family townhouse , a blend of grandeur and intimacy , of classicism and extravagance. Highly Parisian yet decidedly beyond fashion. Indefinable, unclassifiable, simply unique.

Built in the 19th century on Paris’s first balloon landing field in the exclusive 16th arrondissement, this magnificent neo-classical mansion hosted the Thiers foundation for scholars for over a century , before becoming the Saint James Club of Paris. Now a member of Relais & Chateaux, the Saint James Paris is an experience of its own, totally revisited by the dream- maker Bambi Sloan.

Chef Adrian Brunet shares his passion with sincerity through subtle recipes that combine French gastronomical classics and contemporary dining. The gourmet experience has a wonderfully unique atmosphere and its rounded out with a spectacular dessert by the Pastry chef.

In a fascinating shrine, subtle Oriental, Western blend, the Guerlain Spa offers two treatment rooms, two steam-rooms and an exercise room as elegant as a fencing room.

Madeleine Castaing, Rene Magritte or Elizabeth of Austria are examples of the characters who inspired the 49 rooms and suites each one with its own story and especially spacious.

The guests are welcomed like friends would be in this eccentric family house!
