A hotel in Chantilly!

As I do travel a lot not just for pleasure but on business too all over the world, there are some places that remains with you even if time has not allow to be back. This is the case of this resort hotel in the forest at Vineuil St. Firmin near Chantilly, in the Oise dept no 60 in the region of Hauts de France.

I do not have the pictures would like to have as this is from the memories in my vault of them. I believe I was there in September 2011 for a week on a convention. This included special treatment to visit the castle and the living horse museum nearby.  I had gone to there before paying with the family, this one was company paid! The Resort was my first time and love it.

At the time the name was the Dolce Chantilly, and since then it has been included in the Accor French hotel chain part of the group Mercure under the name Mercure Chantilly Resort & Convention Hotel. I like to tell you a bit about it as I found one photo of it!

The now call Mercure Chantilly Resort & Convention Hotel is located in lush greenery in the heart of the historic Chantilly, it is a large hotel and extensive green areas   that welcomes you just 40 minutes from Paris and 25 minutes from Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport. The hotel is located just a few kms from the city of Chantilly and its castle, the famous Château de Chantilly. You will also find the living horse museum not far from the hotel.chantilly

The Mercure Chantilly Resort & Convention Hotel is decorated in a contemporary style, the bright rooms of the hotel all open onto the surrounding forest or onto a private golf course. They are equipped with an LCD TV and Wi-Fi access. Guests can enjoy a updated restaurant bar and 2 swimming pools. With its gym and 18-hole golf course, the hotel is an ideal base for your trip in the area of Chantilly whether business or pleasure. It is an ideal place to relax in the countryside with an 18-hole golf course, hiking or cycling trails, heated indoor and outdoor pools, hammam, sauna, fitness center, and tennis .

The famous restaurant bars Carmontelle, Veranda,and Donatello are no longer and this brings nostalgia to me , right there is re design and new Chef restaurant La Véranda – La Terrace and its panoramic rotunda overlooking the golf course or the relaxed chic atmosphere and its terrace adjoining the outdoor swimming pool.

The webpage for the restaurant has an unique site here: La Véranda-La Terrace resto at Mercure Chantilly

The exact location is at Route D’Apremont Vineuil St. Firmin, Chantilly. Easy by car from Paris on the A1 direction Senlis /Créil/ Crepy-en-Valois and take exit sortie 8 Senlis to leave the A1, get on the D1330 direction Aprémont same route becomes D606 direction Vineuil St Firmin and then follow the signs for the resort. As this can be heavy on traffic especially the A1 autoroute du nord, I take the N1 from the Porte de la Chapelle direction Pierreffite sur Seine and here get on the D316 directino Sarcelles  stay on same road direction Luzarches /Chaumontel/Lamorlaye and into Chantilly becoming the D1016 road, go around past the city hall of Chantilly on D924 road (there is an Auchan hypermarket in the corner turn right into the D924 stay on this road becoming the D606 before the castle and continue on it until reaching  the traffic circle of the carrefour d’Aumale Vineuil St Firmin  turn right on the first street which is route d’Apremont you will see the signs for the resort . It is pretty straight and much less traffic.  Hope it helps

And there you I just needed to have recorded in my blog and hope it will help you stay in this luscious wonderful property or even attend an event here to me it will be the Dolce Chantilly. Enjoy it

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
