Airelles has opened its seventh property, Airelles Château de Versailles, Le Grand Contrôle, in 2021. With views of the Orangerie, the Palace of Versailles, The Château, Le Grand Contrôle is the first hotel to open within the grounds of the Château de Versailles.

Grand Contrôle- Chateau De Versailles
The Grand Contrôle is housed in a building designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, Louis XIV's favourite architect, in 1681. After been refurbished by architect and interior designer Christophe Tollemer, the property now features 14 rooms and suites, Alain Ducasse's cuisine, a Valmont spa (with an indoor swimming pool), and privileged access to the Château de Versailles.
A variety of French artisans and crafters, notably Vidal-Delagneau, were commissioned to restore and replicate the many historical characteristics, such as parquet floors, textiles, brickwork, and wood panelling. Notable: For each room, Maison Pierre Frey has made historic wall hangings with unique designs from the Château archives. Flowers and butterflies are among the themes emblematic of philosopher Jean-Jacques Rosseau's call for a "return to nature."

Accomodations at the Grand Controle 
Each of the 14 rooms and suites is named after a well-known figure associated with Le Grand Contrôle or the Palace of Versailles. Authentic fabrics, chandeliers, artwork, and artifacts, including a love letter from Madame De Stal to her lover Louis, Comte de Narbonne-Lara, are included in each room, which is decorated in an 18th-century style. . Tollemer collaborated closely with Emmanuelle Vidal-Delagneau, a specialist in French heritage and art, in selecting authentic paintings and antiques from the 17th and 18th centuries.
