The hotel “Auberge du Jeu de Paume” was built by Mawlana Hazar Imam as part of a 20-year effort to revitalise the urban area surrounding the Domaine de Chantilly.

Chantilly, a historical 20 thousand-acre princely estate and a jewel of French culture, is undergoing a massive 20-year revitalisation effort led by Mawlana Hazar Imam. At the end of September, four new projects on the estate were inaugurated before a gathering of distinguished guests.

The Chateau of Chantilly.

Situated in the valley of Nonette some 40 kilometres north of Paris, the Domaine de Chantilly records a history that stretches back over six centuries. In 1884, it was bequeathed – complete with its unparalleled collection of art, manuscripts and furnishings – to the Institut de France by the duc d’Aumale, fifth son of King Louis-Philippe I of France.
