Auberge du Jeu de Paume Review

Set within the Domaine de Chantilly, the largest princely estate in France, this deluxe newcomer combines its stunning setting with old-world elegance and modern comforts—such as a spa, pool, steam room, and two restaurants—to create a luxurious country retreat (within an hour of Paris). Many of the 92 beautifully appointed rooms and suites overlook the chateau grounds, fountains, the historic Grand Stables, and Le Nôtre–designed gardens, and all have floor-to-ceiling windows, elegant furnishings, and spacious marble baths. 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 pedigreed chef Arnaud Faye, in whose expert hands dishes like succulent lamb with salsify, 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.
