The Hôtel Le Grand Contrôle at the Domaine of Versailles : the art of living in the eighteenth century

Located in the heart of the Palace of Versailles with a view of the Orangery and the Pièce d’eau des Suisses, the Hôtel Le Grand Contrôle opened its doors on June 1st.

Built in 1681 by the architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart and classified as a Historic Monument, this building, which until the Revolution was the headquarters of the Contrôle Général des Finances, has been entirely restored to accommodate the 14 suites and rooms of the latest Airelles Group luxury hotel as well as the restaurant of the great starred chef Alain Ducasse.

Our workshops worked in the historical rooms to restore the woodwork classified as a historical monument and to complete and rearrange the decorations in accordance with the new architectural and decorative project of the establishment.

For example, Madame Fouquet’s bedroom, whose rich overmantels, mutilated during a renovation, were able to regain their finely sculpted glazing beads:
