Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Auberge du Jeu de Paume, Chantilly

An extraordinary Renaissance palace in the Domaine de Chantilly, the five-star Auberge du Jeu de Paume is the setting for an exquisite experience of French high living. Around 45 minutes from the centre of Paris, the hotel occupies a structure of the utmost grandeur and it is surprising to find it almost dwarfed by the estate in which it stands. The grounds are filled with a magnificent maze of decorative gardens that dissolve into rough land and feature the 'Grand Canal', two museums (the Condé Museum in a château of its own) and the famous race course. You will find endless pleasures in these immaculate grounds, which amply equal the ostentatious glamour of the hotel itself. Built in 1757, Auberge du Jeu de Paume has housed generations of aristocratic families and the service provided for modern-day guests stays true to that heritage. Attention to detail is paramount, particularly in the dining experience at the two venues, La Table du Connétable and Le Jardin d'Hiver. The former boasts Michelin-star acclaim and a firmly French interior design, complete with Louis XVI style armchairs, a regal colour scheme and vibrant flowers. From your seat you can admire garden views or watch the artists at work in the kitchen as they craft creative cuisine under the watchful gaze of Chef Arnaud Faye. The marginally less formal Le Jardin d'Hiver pays tribute to artist Christophe Huet, and the bar is a refined destination for snacks and sweet treats. For further indulgences, seek the Moorish-style environment of Spa Valmont, where there is an indoor pool and a number of treatments for pampering. In Auberge du Jeu de Paume's 92 rooms and suites, there is no let up to the feeling of luxury, with chandeliers glinting overhead, antique portraits on the walls and thick, heavy drapery of a toile de joie design.
