Airelles - Chateau de Versailles

A day in Versailles

Even if you are not staying overnight at Le Grand Contrôle, you can still enjoy an extraordinary day at the Palace of Versailles with us: delight in a gourmet lunch at Alain Ducasse's table and revel in exclusive access to the Palace de Versailles gardens. A truly royal interlude, all within an hour of Paris.

A gourmet interlude

From Monday to Saturday, savour a gourmet lunch at Alain Ducasse's table while admiring the breathtaking view of the Palace’s Orangerie.

On Sundays, indulge in a generous à la carte brunch, combining Executive Chef Stéphane Duchiron's signature dishes with Aymeric Pinard's refined pastries. These delectable dishes celebrate fresh and local produce, with some sourced directly from the Palace of Versailles own kitchen garden.

An entertaining programme

After your meal, you can then choose to spend the afternoon in the lush gardens of the Palace of Versailles: guests of Le Grand Contrôle benefit from private direct access. This unique opportunity allows you to bask in the tranquillity of the greenery, far from the bustling crowd of visitors.

To make the day even more special, we invite you to immerse yourself in the Château's summer programming: during Les Jardins Musicaux (from Tuesday to Friday) and Les Grandes Eaux Musicales (every Saturday and Sunday) the Versailles fountains are animated with traditional baroque music, creating a truly magical ambiance.
