Auberge du Jeu de Paume Review

Set within the Domaine de Chantilly, the largest princely estate in France, this newcomer combines its stunning setting with old-world elegance and modern comforts to create a deluxe country retreat; all of the beautifully appointed guest rooms have elegant furnishings, spacious marble baths, and floor-to-ceiling windows—the last being particularly appreciated because many accommodations overlook the château grounds, the historic Grand Stables, and Le Nôtre–designed gardens. For dining, look no further than the hotel's gastronomic La Table du Connétable or the Jardin d'Hiver bistro, both featuring the ambitious cuisine of Chef Arnaud Faye, in whose expert hands dishes like succulent lamb with parsnip and black truffle, or crayfish with egg ravioli, chervil, and sweet onion are raised to an art form. There's also a cozy bar for a snack, teatime, or just an apèro. Other on-site perks include a spa, pool, and steam room.
