The French are known for their wonderful tastes in art and beauty and so it is of little surprise that some of the finest hotels are found in France. And now, adding to the list will be an ultra-luxe hotel within the boundaries of the famous French monument The Palace of Versailles, according to the president of the Chateau de Versailles, Jean-Jacques Aillagon.
Since the buildings in the palace require renovation, the decision has been taken to merge the renovation process with the transformation of a particular wing into a hotel. Similar projects have already been carried out in other parts of the country with successful results. Guests can now enjoy a stay within the historical palace, which was built in the 17th century and since has housed many famous people. With stunning views of the palace’s greenhouse or the ornamental lake in the garden, guests can choose from an option of 23 rooms. The hotel is expected to open its doors by late 2011.
With this unique initiative, the French have once again proved their love for stylish luxury. And what’s even better is that you too can sample a slice of it. Just wait for a while and get set to become a part of history by living in a bedroom that once belonged to emperors and generals!
