Le Grand Contrôle an experience unique Worldwide

Experience

From period furnishings and paintings to the staff’s uniforms, history is reborn at Le Grand Contrôle in a decor preserving the authenticity of the 18th century. Benefit from an array of privileges and exclusive tours.

Every morning, before it opens to the public, a guide will introduce you to the secrets of the Domaine de Trianon on an exclusive visit reserved for guests staying at Le Grand Contrôle. At the end of the day, you will be escorted inside the Château, by then closed to visitors, for a private tour of rooms which explain the renown of Versailles: the Hall of Mirrors, the Grand Apartments, private Apartments and the “Cabinets” of Marie-Antoinette. During this exceptional tour, you will enjoy the privilege of visiting these areas rarely unveiled to the public.

In decor marked by the splendours of the Court, savour the refined cuisine of Chef Alain Ducasse. The many dishes appear in “services“. Dressed in period costumes, the team presents dishes of gold, silver and vermeil. Enjoy a romantic dinner in one of the private rooms listed as Historic Monuments with clear views of the Orangery Gardens, with a feast of nine courses, served like a well-orchestrated ballet. Slip inside the skin of Marie-Antoinette…

After the “Lever de la Reine”, pay a visit to the Domaine de Trianon, then relax in the Spa Valmont with the “Miroir Majestueux” treatment, inspired by the Queen’s beauty care rituals. Dress in a magnificent costume before being treated to make-up and hair styling as in the days of the Court, and relish afternoon tea, “Les Délices de Marie-Antoinette”, with water infused with roses from the Gardens of Versailles, once used by the Queen.

 

“Savour the Refined cusine of Chef Alain Ducasse.”

 

 

Inside Airelles

Discover one of the hidden treasures of the Château de Versailles; the Opéra Royal created by Blaise-Henri Arnoult. At the end of the performance, slip backstage to join the cast. Your butler will be waiting for you, a lantern in his hand, to take you back to Le Grand Contrôle through the gardens.

For an even more exceptional experience, Le Grand Contrôle can be entirely privatised from a full day to a week. The personnel will be at your disposal to make this stay a memorable event, with delicious feasts and visits rich in discoveries.

"Young Explorers" – a new Airelles experience for children

Experience

In every Airelles property, children are treated like royalty – and the experience begins the moment they arrive, thanks to a little surprise that’s placed by their beds, including edible treats, toys, bath products and other fun trinkets… Children are then immersed in the Airelles universe and all the excitement it has to offer.

At La Bastide, everything is planned to ensure they have a dream holiday from the moment they wake up until the time their eyes close. Outside, the swimming pool reserved for children is made for endless diving and ball games. They can also challenge their friends or their mum and dad to a game of table football or ping-pong. Inside, the fully equipped playroom for children and teenagers is filled laughter all day long. And because there’s nothing like having fun outside to make you hungry, ice cream and all the other treats that children adore will be served to them whenever they want, inside or outside. Because we all need a little boost of energy before we go on that treasure hunt, or take part in a pastry workshop …

Thanks to its fabulous décor, there can be no better place to have adventures in than Château de la Messardière. In the heart of the garden is an expansive playground filled with amenities for anyone under 12, with the wooden fittings arranged by age. Swings, agility course and slides are all on offer, as well as a playhouses for the youngest, where they can let their imagination run wild surrounded by nature. The fun continues in the indoor play area, which is full of toys, video games and table football, among many other activities. During meals or at afternoon tea, there aren’t any specific children’s menus, instead, they can choose their favourite dish or snack.

“Everything is planned to ensure they have a dream holiday”

Inside Airelles

And to turn the fun factor up to 10, this year Airelles has invented a series of quests for children to follow. In each property, history has left its mark. A painting, a chair, a sculpture – everything here is marked by an era, a style and a particular memory. Gordes, les Baux-de-Provence, Saint-Tropez, the Palace of Versailles, Val d’Isère, Courchevel: in each of the destinations, kids will learn more about the past by going on an exceptional treasure hunt, helped along the way by an array of characters from French history.

Upon arrival, our youngest guests are renamed “The Young Explorers of Airelles” and are given a very special mission to complete. Holding their “Book of Clues”, they will set off to meet the characters who have come to visit them from the past, and who will lead them away in a fabulous exploration of local history. At the end of their journey, treasure awaits in the form of a delicious treat – a reward for all their loyalty towards our famous personalities.

Each season, Airelles will offer our Young Explorers wonderful memories and new stories to tell.

La Maison de Constance, an enchanting escape at La Bastide

Experience

La Bastide is packed with charm and a visit to the Gordes property means seeing the Luberon Valley at its most dazzling. And with 34 rooms and 6 suites filled with Provencal inspiration, La Bastide will certainly feel home. Although around the corner from the hotel is an extraordinary house, which offers total privacy for anyone who stays there – La Maison de Constance, La Bastide’s private villa.

In this house, every wish is fulfilled. Lou, the dedicated butler, will happily respond to any request from his guests – and for those having too much fun to cook, a chef is also available.

“A delightful holiday with family or friends.”

Inside Airelles

At nearly 4,000 square-feet, the villa feels wonderfully airy and authentic, and each room has been stylishly designed to create sense of timelessness. There is a dining room, a comfortable sitting room, relaxation areas, and many more areas that offer unparalleled tranquillity. Every detail has been thought of, so service feels warm and personalised.

The Pan Deï Palais – the revival of an iconic hotel that reflects its Mediterranean history

Experience

In the heart of the village of Saint Tropez, sits Pan Deï Palais, in a unique setting, built out of love for the Indian princess of the same name. Today, the same aesthetic has been reinterpreted by interior decorator Christophe Tollemer. It reopens on June 25th, with a sleek design and a new high-end Italian catering concept. The ambiance is reminiscent of the surrounding Mediterranean – light and bucolic. The ideal place to get away from it all, Pan Deï Palais remains a Saint Tropez jewel in the Airelles crown.

New and more beautiful than ever

Clean lines, high-quality materials and Eastern prints – a new house will be uncovered behind this iconic ochre facade. From Pan Deï Palais lobby onwards, the decor is refined but also contemporary. Filled with rich materials such as oak, flannel, leather and embroidery, Pan Deï Palais’s embellishment is an important part of the decor. The sense of the exotic is subtle but important, transporting you to another time and place.

Outside, guests can immerse themselves in the Mediterranean again, in the lush garden filled with olive trees. The furniture reinforces the feeling of tranquillity, with its softness, its materials and its contours. At the edge of the swimming pool, dining areas have been set up with sun loungers, ensuring you enjoy all the fresh air of Saint-Tropez . A large relaxation area stretches out towards the property walls and – infusing it with the holiday spirit – a palm tree continues to watch over this Eden of Saint Tropez, a vintage tradition of the area.

The beauty of an Italian restaurant

Once located just nearby on Rue des Feniers, the Dolceva restaurant has now moved to a special place inside the property. Its interior architecture echoes that of the reception, including even the precious ‘Versailles’ parquet in solid oak. Comfort is further enriched by two stone fireplaces from the 16th century, the last amenity from when the hotel was open all year round. In the kitchen, Chef Gianluca Manzo gives the Palais a southern accent with a menu overseen by Marco Garfagnini. Over the years he has become famous for his ability to make Italian Cuisine in harmony with the Mediterranean environment. It is the ideal Saint-Tropez atmosphere to savour the Italian classics in, including antipasti, seafood and delicious sharing dishes. In the evening, Dolceva throws open its terrace doors to the outside.

“The best-kept secret on the Côte d’Azur will throw open its doors, offering all the charm and intimacy of a private house.”

Inside Airelles

A private villa

As of this summer, the best-kept secret on the Côte d’Azur will throw open its doors, offering all the charm and intimacy of a private house. Personalised service is guaranteed thanks to a team of 20 people who are dedicated to the property and its guests. From the concierge team to the talented Chef, guests will benefit from a complete experience (catering, accommodation, transfers) and enjoy an unforgettable stay.

An incomparable experience

This summer, we are also offering the “Rosé All Day ” experience. Spend a day at Château d’Estoublon, a sumptuous wine and olive-growing estate in Provence, which is opening its doors to all guests of Pan Deï Palais. Between visiting the estate, tasting wines and olive oils, accessing the Château’s services and activities, and enjoying a lunch at the estate’s new restaurant, La Table d’Estoublon by Wim Van Gorp, it’s something to remember.

La Mer at the Summit at Les Airelles

Experience

Luxurious, magical, warm and soothing, the LA MER Spa for Les Airelles is all this and more. Here, every desire for well-being and beauty is stated only to be fulfilled.

Back from the great outdoors, after having slalomed between the larches, everything here conspires to pamper mind and body. First of all, the setting, with wood, stone, subdued lighting and whispered words. Then there is the turquoise blue swimming pool, which invites you to take a dip, the fitness room where you can burn calories on ultra-sophisticated equipment, the cryotherapy cabin, the snow grotto, the hairdresser’s salon… They all await guests in search of perfection. But the essential is elsewhere, in the treatments, made to measure and luxurious. The Spa des Airelles offers a unique moment of escape guided by the expertise of La Mer. The brand, famous for its iconic Crème de la Mer, reveals itself here at the height of its reputation. To do this, it has a trump card in its hand: new well-being experiences at the cutting edge of research.

“Ici, chaque désir bien-être et beauté n’est énoncé que pour être exaucé.”

“Une profonde sensation de bien-être et de relaxation.”

Inside Airelles

First of all, INTRACEUTICALS. This famous anti-ageing treatment solution delivers therapeutic grade oxygen under hyperbaric pressure to infuse an active serum into the deepest layers of the skin. Remarkable results with immense relaxation.

SHIRODHARA therapy, a unique form of ancient rejuvenation and purification therapy, is designed to remove toxins through the flow of oils to the forehead and scalp. A deep sense of well-being and relaxation that will ease nervous, physical and emotional tension.

And to complete these moments of well-being, the fairy fingers of Cyril Goth, the House hairdresser, will restore the hair to its full splendour. A little surprise for these gentlemen, Cyril is also a barber!

Between well-being, sport and beauty, the Spa LA MER offers a collection of pleasures before leaving for new adventures. Close your eyes, forget the stress of everyday life and take full advantage of this luxurious sensory interlude. What if this was happiness ?

A kid’s paradise in the Maisons Airelles

Experience

In each of its hotels, Airelles strives to create unforgettable memories for all visitors. This is equally applicable for the big ones … as for the little ones. For our smallest guests, Airelles has brought the Children’s Kingdom to life – a kid-orientated space that lives up to their wildest imaginations.

In the Children’s Kingdom, dreams really do come true. Little princes and princesses are welcomed into an enchanted place filled with imagination. In this magical world, a thousand and one indoor and outdoor activities are available for young guests. The immense games rooms are filled with hidden treasure and every type of entertainment imaginable: toys, dolls and tea-sets for the little ones; arcade games, simulators, video games, air hockey and other consoles for their older siblings.

Under the watchful eyes of their fun-filled minders, the children will fall in love their long enchanted days, where dreams mingle with reality and memories last forever. In the evening, there are more delights to be had: in Courchevel, an exquisite Hermes carriage will take parents and kids on a tour around the snowy village, while in Gordes, the French garden will transform into a grand open-air cinema.

“In the Children’s Kingdom, dreams really do come true.”

“The children will fall in love their long enchanted days.”

Inside Airelles

The best memories always come from moments spent together, which is why Airelles – with the assistance of the concierges – is always happy to organise outdoor activities for the entire family. This includes cultural tours around an extraordinary Cistercian abbey, which is one of Gordes’ great historical monuments; exploring the Manchet Valley on the back of a dog sled in Val d’Isere, or hurtling down the Trois Vallées on a snowmobile.

Voila! And an example of why it’s the small details that create the most exceptional experiences, and why Airelles is the ideal choice for any family holiday.

A once-in-a-lifetime spa experience that can now be shared with the whole family. At Airelles Val d’Isère, ‘Damoiselles & Damoiseaux’ – children between 6 and 12 years old – are not forgotten when it comes to pampering. Guerlain has designed four unique experiences just for them, including ‘Le petit chevalier’, a hand, foot, and head massage, and ‘Complicité au cœur de l’hiver’ to be enjoyed alongside their parents in the dual treatment room.

For the first time in Europe, Guerlain has launched a Boudoir dedicated to your hands, legs and feet, where even the sound of the treatment list -‘Les jolies mitaines’ or ‘Le gant de velours’ is enough to make you feel like the exotic pampering has already begun.

The SPA lounge welcomes guests for a relaxing break as they step out of the water. Sample a range of teas, infusions, natural juices, or cocktails made from fresh vegetables at L’Echoppe, which has been fashioned by craftsmen from old engravings.

The aquatic space with sensory showers, a sauna, hammam and Guerlain ‘Thermal Legends’ treatments ensures you have everything you need for a truly relaxing getaway.
Airelles Val d’Isère provides its guests with the pampering they deserve in this unique wellness area.

Airelles Courchevel, a land of adventure

Experience

At Courchevel, there are activities…and then there are Les Airelles activities.

The entire Les Airelles experience has been meticulously crafted to offer guests more amazing adventures than they could ever dream of.

The one-of-a-kind activities are fun for all the family and will captivate both children and adults of all ages. Fans of snow sports and outdoor activities have access to the 3 Valleys, Europe’s largest ski area, and can take private lessons in skiing and snowboarding as well guided excursions with experts in snow shoeing, cross-country skiing and ski touring. On top of that, ice hockey matches and skijoring are also organised for children and teenagers.

And for the thrill-seekers? At every opportunity, Les Airelles organises special experiences such as dog sledding expeditions, hot air balloon rides, paragliding and sky diving. And never one to rest on its laurels, the hotel has two brand-new activities on offer this year: firstly, the opportunity to enjoy a picnic at high altitude with a helicopter flight. And secondly, to spend an unforgettable day cross-country skiing to a refuge (refuge du Christ), where an instructor will introduce the more daring to off-piste skiing, followed by an authentic Savoy meal.

After a day’s skiing, when the slopes close and the resort comes to life, guests at Les Airelles can continue the fun by skating on the private ice rink, going for a snowmobile ride, fat biking, experiencing a torchlight descent or even testing their wits at an escape game in a yurt. Anyone looking to rather let go and unwind also have a rich and varied programme of relaxing activities at their disposal: snowga, yoga, fitness, pilates and obviously La Mer, the locally renowned spa and perfect pre-dinner treat.

“The one-of-a-kind activities are fun for all the family and will captivate both children and adults of all ages.”

 

Inside Airelles

A special requirement? Giuseppe Pochintesta, the clefs d’or concierge at Les Airelles, and his team are on hand to fulfil any requests and make even the wildest dreams reality. “It’s the small touch of added emotion that makes Les Airelles so different”, he tells us. Without him, the Courchevel activities and the magic of Les Airelles could never come to life.

The most unique and extraordinary way of living the Courchevel experience, which will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.

Amazing activities for an unforgettable stay at La Bastide

Experience

You have chosen to lay your head at La Bastide, at the heart of the small Provençal village of Gordes, and thus treat yourself to an extraordinary escape where you can enjoy time with your loved ones and delight in the finer things in life.

While La Bastide is well known for its culinary prestige, relaxing atmosphere and breath-taking views over the Provence region, it also offers fantastic experiences for everyone. A large range of activities are available to guests, young and old alike, looking for something special to feed their body and mind.

The most popular activities with our guests are the seasonal specialties, such as the JeudiVins, wine tasting nights featuring the best local vintages, meticulously selected by our head sommelier Rodolphe Fontaine.

The events organised by Michel Dumas, a scientist from the Ventoux Provence Planetarium, have also been a huge success. All season long, he introduces guests to the passionate art of star gazing, teaching them how to read the sky maps handed out every month, much to our residents’ delight. Each introduction is different: Michel Dumas tailors the lesson based on age, nationality, date and the movement of the stars, planets and moon. An incredible experience of which you can be the star.

No summer is complete without the magnificent gardens of La Bastide being open for your pleasure: from Cross-Fit lessons to an open-air cinema, these magical surroundings will be the setting for some incredible memories. Music also plays a key part in this parade of activities, with live concerts every night at the bar. Our talented musicians and DJs guarantee a fun and festive atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all. Jazz, swing, Bossa Nova, pop, soul…there’s something for everyone!

With all musical genres catered for, the grown-ups can let loose while the kids have a ball.

“The most popular activities with our guests are the seasonal specialties…”

“At La Bastide, children are kings…”

Inside Airelles

At La Bastide, children are kings and have free reign over an entire kingdom built for them.

While magician and caricaturist enthral and mesmerise guests, the staff entertain the younger generations with hands-on and sporty activities, outdoor film screenings and even, like our Easter egg hunt, large treasure hunts in the gardens !

The small village of Gordes doesn’t shy away from the festive mood: there are plenty of activities to choose from in the region and the concierge will be happy to organise fantastic days out for families, couples or singles, ranging from tree-top obstacle courses, canoeing/kayaking, horse riding, hot-air balloon rides, e-bike excursions, Segway expeditions, tennis matches and much more !

Boredom is out of the question this season…unless you decide that’s what you want !
