You’ll Soon Be Able to Eat, Drink and Stay at the Palace of Versailles
Attention history buffs: Your dream travel experience is about to become a possibility.
The Palace of Versailles in France—one of the world’s top tourist destinations that has housed the likes of Marie Antoinette and King Louis XIV—is about to get updated with an on-site hotel and restaurant, CTV News reports.
His hospitality company, Lov Hotel Collection, has taken on the transformation of three buildings on the grounds into just 20 boutique-style hotel rooms along with a fine-dining space—a renovation project that is projected to cost around $16 million. The décor is expected to stay true to the opulent French Baroque style of the rest of the palace.
Want to start planning your trip? You’ll have to wait a little bit: The project is scheduled to open in 2018. But, hey, at least that gives you plenty of time to start saving up.
