Forget Napoleon, the Auberge du Jeu de Paume Brings Opulence Back to the French Countryside

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Chantilly, France – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The majestic Auberge du Jeu de Paume, nestled on a 20,000-acre Chantilly estate one of the largest forests outside Paris, opened in September 2012. The new hotel is a focal point of efforts by the Foundation for the Safe-keeping and Development of the Chantilly Domain to promote the site. The hotel was designed and constructed under the supervision of the national heritage authorities in a resolutely 18th century, exposing guests a true taste of traditional French hospitality and the region’s best selection of recreational activities.

Located in a quaint historical setting, one known for its majestic castles, equestrian prowess and close proximity to Paris, hotel guests can conveniently explore the estate’s cultural attractions: the Condé museum, Château de Chantilly with its parks and gardens, the Grand Stables and Living Horse Museum, along with year-round exhibitions and shows. There are also several renowned golf courses in the vicinity and the option of playing polo at the historical Ferme d’Apremont, home to Chantilly’s famous Polo Club and site of the 2004 World Polo Championship.

Indoors the Auberge du Jeu de Paume features 68 guestrooms and 24 suites offering, a perfect alliance of luxury and refinement, with a gourmet restaurant – La Table des Connétables – headed by Arnaud Faye, the Jardin d’Hiver brasserie, and a 6,000-square foot spa with a pool and fitness centre.

So come join Chantilly, recently dubbed the “Town of Art and History” by the French Ministry of Culture, at Auberge du Jeu de Paume for an authentic, tranquil slice of rolling French countryside.
