An enchanting break at Le Grand Contrôle

Airelles Château de Versailles, an iconic location

You literally can’t stay anywhere closer to the Château de Versailles. Behind the pearl-grey wooden door of Le Grand Contrôle hides an idyllic place, just for you. Enjoy a timeless stay among exceptional décor paying tribute to the beauty of this historic world-class monument. With Versailles-style touches everywhere, you will be transported back centuries to the time of the Sun King. At Le Grand Contrôle, there is very little between you and the famous Gallery of Great Battles  and the Parterre du Midi gardens. Nothing in the decoration has been left to chance. All materials have been carefully chosen to reflect the best styles of the 18th century, with golden touches taking you right back in time. It is an unforgettable experience which will delight all ages, to enjoy as a couple or as a family.

A fairy-tale experience

During a restorative stay, you will live as someone from the Court of King Louis XIV would have done. Comfortably settled in your five-star room or your Suite, your every wish will be taken care of. Our team will be on hand at all times to respond to your every whim and to ensure you have an exceptional time. Everything has been thought of down to the smallest detail to offer you an experience like no other, in an elegant and warm atmosphere.

Start your day with a generous, gourmet breakfast from room service. Enjoy waking up in the high-end bed specially designed for Airelles and the hotel bed linen delicately perfumed with our pillow scent. Then try the Valmont Spa for a facial or relaxing massage. Settle yourself in one of the comfortable, quiet salons for a well-deserved wellbeing moment. Le Grand Contrôle has also thought of everything for its younger guests, with a selection of ‘Nougatine’ treatments specially designed for children. Before lunch, swim some lengths in the indoor pool, heated all year round. As midday strikes, head for the Alain Ducasse Michelin star restaurant. Put on your period costume and spend the rest of the day in Queen Marie-Antoinette’s shoes. You will have the chance to privately explore the Hall of Mirrors or the Domaine de Trianon – places which inspired architect Christophe Tollemer when he designed Le Grand Contrôle. Before attending a feast worthy of the banquets of yesteryear, take a few moments to rest in your room or Suite.
