For château cool with a touch of five-star splendour, this swanky castle-hotel is just half-an-hour north of Paris. Built for a French composer in 1911 and set right by the Chantilly Forest – once the hunting ground for France’s elite – there’s plenty here to delight; from its sublime setting on a hilltop surrounded by scenic woodland to its proximity to the charming medieval city of Senlis.
Whilst the picture-perfect location is fabulously rural and rustic, the interiors are anything but. Expect thorough luxury in each of the 108 rooms and suites, many of which have furnished balconies for awe-inspiring forest views. All rooms are individual in style and design, kitted out with lavish fabrics, striped wall furnishings, smatterings of period décor, and much-appreciated modern gadgetry such as iPod docks, LCD TV, and a DVD player.
The château’s old ballroom is the site of L’Opéra, the signature fine dining restaurant that serves up first-rate cuisine under the watchful eye of gourmet chef Benoist Rambaud, while the old smokehouse is now the Stradivarius Bar – a wood-panelled lounge with a brick-lined fireplace, velvet fabrics, and soft lighting. Further temptations include a tennis court, fitness centre with cardio and weight-training equipment, and peaceful spa where you can take a swim under glistening chandeliers and get royally pampered.
How to Get There
We stayed for a weekend break and had the most wonderful time. A beautiful hotel in the forest of Chantilly, which you should visit. The staff are very attentive, polite, immaculately presented and very pleasant. We spent hours relaxing in the pool, jacuzzi and sauna area.
We enjoyed a bottle of wine on the terrace before dining in the Stradivarius restaurant, which was superb, and highly recommended.
Breakfast was very nice too.....great selection.
Our room overlooked the forest and was very peaceful. Again, everything was immaculate.
A fantastic place to relax in beautiful surroundings.......will definitely return.
An excellent hotel hidden away in the forest of Chantilly. The hotel building is truly impressive, with a great attention to detail in the decor. We were upgraded on arrival to a room in the historical part of the hotel, which was very picturesque. The staff were quite friendly and rather accommodating.
The hotel grounds are really perfect if you want to go for a walk and enjoy nature. Further to note, as the hotel is away from the city, you will likely eat and spend much of your time in the hotel which is something to consider. For us this was perfect, as the hotel has plenty to offer.
Special place away from Paris, very private, entrance control by gate so the people and press are controlled and players can stay relax and calm, gym, pool, are very beautiful and with respect with rooms and bath are private
We stayed for one night and it was a short train ride from Paris. A nice easy way to escape the city to be at a beautiful location. Both dinner and breakfast were very good. The staff was friendly and attentive.
A very nice building but a poor hotel. Rooms are old and dusty style full of textiles everywhere. If you are alergic to dust mites stay away! There is nothing around the hotel. In a forest but no way to walk around. No public transport and no taxi on busy hours. 5 star is definetely too much. The breakfast is just good. I have been in 3-4 stars hotel which has better breakfast. No fresh coffee at breakfast and it is served cold! The mini bar is very expensive stay away of it!
