Le Grand Controle: my Marie Antoinette style weekend
Even in my wildest dreams, I did not expect to be in this majestic place. The mansion on the grounds of the Château de Versailles has 14 bedrooms and is furnished with antiques. But no, this is not a museum where people speak in whispers! An impeccable spa and restaurant designed by Alain Ducasse is your new French fantasy and the place I want to introduce you to.
My Loménie De Brienne suite, named after Louis XVI's finance minister, had a special charm. Everything is matched impeccably, every detail, every little thing. The classic style inspired me for a boudoir photo shoot that combined images for royal social events. I think Ludovic would forgive me such playfulness. Do you think I managed to convey the atmosphere of the Treasury issue - papers, deeds, decisions of world politics between the loudest parties in history. Sounds like a dream, doesn't it?
The staff wears very stylized uniforms, the menu recommends the preferences of kings, the butler is extremely courteous and it feels like I've traveled back in time.
For breakfast, coffee and unimaginably delicious cakes were once again immersed in this wonderful adventure and prepared for a day full of luxury and pleasure. I took advantage of the offer of a private tour of the castle and palaces of Trianon, the main residence of the French kings. Yes, the sweetest thing about this hotel is its exclusive access to Versailles. Hospitality is like theater! I love it.
