Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

I’m not sure if it was a strategy or just a series of lucky coincidences, but IHG’s upmarket InterContinental brand runs a number of historic properties in France.

You are likely to have heard of InterContinental Paris Le Grand, which is my favourite place to stay in Paris. (Book via our partner Emyr Thomas and you get free club lounge access on all bookings here.)

There is also InterContinental Lyon Hotel Dieu, InterContinental Marseille and InterContinental Bordeaux Le Grand (reviewed here).

InterContinental Chantilly hotel

Later this year, InterContinental will unveil a new ‘chateau’ property – InterContinental Chantilly Château Mont Royal.

This existing 107 room hotel is undergoing a full renovation, having previous been an independent hotel marketed via Small Luxury Hotels of the World. To quote:

Built in the early 20th century and showcasing Louis XVI style architecture, InterContinental Chantilly – Château Mont Royal will feature two restaurants, a bar and a summer terrace where guests may enjoy long, light nights and scenic views, as well as 11 meeting rooms, a gym, sauna, jacuzzi and treatment rooms alongside an indoor swimming pool and tennis court.

Situated just 40km from the French capital and 20 minutes from Charles de Gaulle Airport, the hotel’s location makes it the ideal destination for leisure guests or corporate groups seeking to combine city sightseeing with the many historic and picturesque sights of Chantilly and its surroundings. The town is renowned for its elegant royal heritage, intricately woven lace, and popular racecourse, which was founded in 1840 and is the venue of the annual “Prix de Diane” held each June.

It is, apparently, also convenient for Parc Asterix.

InterContinental Chantilly is now bookable at ihg.com from 15th Julyclick here.

Note that IHG One Rewards redemptions are decent value at the moment. You’re getting around 0.5p per point, compared to our standard valuation of 0.4p. Rooms start at around €325, except during the Olympics, which is cheap compared to central Paris.
