Once upon a time at Versailles : Airelles Royal Camp

Like a child’s dream, Airelles Royal Camp plunges its young visitors deep into history with extraordinary, tailormade experiences.

We welcome children into the heart of Château de Versailles, full of history and magic, for a fairy tale adventure, where imagination overtakes reality and all their dreams can come true.


What better playground is there than the French gardens and this 18th century-inspired hotel? There are fun creative and sporty activities every day at Airelles Royal Camp to entertain and create special memories for your children while you enjoy your stay at Le Grand Contrôle.

In the footsteps of princes and princesses

Making their own sailing ship, taking a pony ride in the Versailles gardens or swimming with a mermaid in the Valmont Spa pool, these are the kind of activities children can enjoy every day at Le Grand Contrôle. Let your butler come up with a programme for them worthy of a dauphin in the era of the Court.

And when it is time for a break, your children will love the gourmet afternoon tea at which they can choose from a huge range of drinks and homemade snacks.


The programme of activities changes according to the seasons to allow your little ones to explore the domain from a different angle. During summer there are endless opportunities for games in the gardens, while winter lends itself more to cultural exploration.


As well as bespoke activities, there is also some exceptional entertainment linked to annual events especially designed for children, such as the traditional Easter Egg hunt.

When dreams become reality

Did you know that Louis XV brought an elephant to live in the Versailles zoo? At Le Grand Contrôle, everything is thought of for a bespoke stay like no other, and all your most extravagant demands will be met, just like in the time of the Kings.


A playroom can be created wherever you like, in a Suite, on the terrace, or in the gardens. Do you want to turn our largest Suite into a giant pirate-themed beach? Or to set up a farm with animals in the courtyard for a day? Our butlers will make it their mission to make your children’s dreams come true.

Relaxing spa treatments for children

Directly inspired by royal beauty rituals, the Valmont Spa is a peaceful haven which offers a sensorial journey like no other. To provide your children with a relaxing break, the Spa has partnered with Nougatine Paris, a brand of natural cosmetics designed to gently and tenderly care for the youngest skin. Designed especially for children, it mixes French chic and gorgeous scents.


A Gourmet Facial lets children discover the benefits of cosmetic products and of getting into good habits from a young age, and is followed by a cold fruit juice or a hot chocolate, the King and Queen’s favourite drinks. For those aged 12 and up, the four-step Gourmet Purity Facial helps keep teen skin hydrated, clear and non-shiny.


The couples cabin allows parent and child to share a bonding experience with the Duo Royal, a body treatment adapted to their age and tastes which introduces your child to the art of massage.

Entrust your children to Airelles Royal Camp in total confidence.
