Tradition and elegance. Comfort and tranquillity. Charm at a stone's throw from Paris. Welcome to Élodie Riolon's hotel.
"I love this profession because human interactions offer beautiful surprises".
"We are attentive to our guests and do all our possible to satisfy them", states Élodie. With her team, Élodie welcomes you to the Hotel The Originals Saint-Laurent, an elegant 3 star located 25 minutes from Versailles, to the west of Paris, at the heart of Montfort-l'Amaury. This charming residence, built in the early 17th century, is home to 15 rooms while its adjacent building contains 4. This beautiful home, which served as town hall and barrack for the Maréchaussée in 1790, reverted to being a private residence during the Empire. Today, Élodie advocates the gentle life in a verdant setting. An ideal hotel for relaxing and resting just 30 km from Paris.
Located at Montfort-l'Amaury in the Yvelines, in the Île-de-France region, the hotel is only 12 km from Thoiry, 35 min from Paris-Ouest and 25 min from Versailles.
A WALK IN MONTFORT-L'AMORY
In proximity to the Rambouillet forest, Montfort-l'Amaury invites you to stroll through its narrow streets spread out below the ruins of the fortified castle. It is named after the Count de Montfort who took up residence here as early as the 11th century. It's in this small city with a medieval past that Maurice Ravel composed the vast majority of his works; you can, by the way, visit his house. A small elegant city that offers some pretty boutiques and good restaurants.
THE PALACE OF VERSAILLES
A symbol of classic perfection, the largest palace in the world was, from the end of the 17th century to the Revolution, a constant work in progress, a sumptuous reflection of an intensely creative epoch and representative of royal follies from Louis XIV to Louis XVI. Miraculously preserved from the ravages of time, the castle and its lands are progressively returning to their former glory thanks to significant restoration work.
THE THOIRY ANIMAL PARK AND BOTANICAL GARDEN
The animal park lets you admire tigers, lemurs, Komodo dragons, wolves, birds, etc. High point: an armoured glass tunnel which separates the visitors from the wild cats for impressive face-to-face encounters. The small animal Arch is dedicated to the small creatures that populate our planet: insects, invertebrates, amphibians, etc. The botanical garden is home to a wide variety of plants. The youngest will also appreciate the playground and the mini-farm.
THE RAMBOUILLET CASTLE PARK
A cultural stroll through Rambouillet, in particular inside the castle's park. Covered in jonquils in the springtime, the park is well-known for the variety of its gardens, evidence of the planning that continued in the 17th and 18th centuries. On the agenda: French garden, water garden, the Shell cottage, the Queen's creamery, the National sheepfold, etc.
What our customers say
Very welcoming reception staff (both night and day) who were very helpful. Appreciated attention given to dog but charge for dog was rather overpriced. Breakfast selection could be better.
"A good location is important but it is the people who make the difference"
The hotel is located in a very pretty village near Paris. The hotel itself is a beautiful building in a very nice surrounding at walking distance from the center with it's restaurants and shops. The staff at the reception during the day and night is excellent very friendly and very service minded. That makes the difference !
Great location for visiting Versailles. Gardens were very well maintained almost like having the Palace gardens outside the window! Entrance to room via tower a great plus. One bedside lamp did not work socket seemed a little faulty? Great night's sleep on each of the three nights. On site secure parking a real plus. Would certainly consider using again if in the area.
Near Paris and Rambouillet, in a pleasant setting, the hotel offers 2 seminar rooms. They are all well-equipped and enjoy lots of natural light.
