VERSAILLES, France - This winter the Trianon Palace Versailles is capturing the true spirit of Christmas by launching its very own ice skating rink and Christmas market on 4th December.

The 120 square metre ice skating rink will be located on the terrace of the hotel offering stunning views of the property’s park as well as the Chateau de Versailles’ royal gardens.  It will be open from the 4th to the 17th of December from 4 pm to 8 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and from 2 pm to 8 pm on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.  From 18th December until 2nd January, the rink will be open everyday from 2 pm to 8 pm.  One hour skate hire will cost €10 for adults and children.  Delicious hot chocolate and mulled wine will be served under heated parasols to keep guests warm.

The Trianon Palace Versailles is also organising a luxury Christmas market in the hotel grounds.  Fifteen wooden chalets will be filled with sweet and savoury treats prepared in the hotel’s two Michelin star kitchens, as well as other luxury and quality gifts perfect for those looking for different Christmas presents and decorations, including gingerbread, Trianon Palace Versailles branded Champagne, oysters and foie gras.

Children and adults alike will relish in the festive spirit with the chance to make their own chocolate treats alongside the hotel’s pastry chef, Eddie Benghanem.  There will also be a make-up studio, gift wrapping service and Christmas stories told by Father Christmas himself.  In addition, a BMW 328 collector car, scaled down for children, will be on display in the hotel gallery with test drives available in the hotel grounds.

The hotel offers a unique location, close to the Chateau de Versailles and set within stunning landscape gardens.  It is the perfect location for a festive short-break in the style of wonderland in the midst of out-of-this-world-decor.  

The Trianon Palace Versailles is offering an exclusive Festive Period Package from €269.  It includes accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis, two glasses of champagne, a VIP gift in the room, free access to the ice skating rink and the Guerlain spa as well as free upgrade upon availability. The price is per room per night and valid from 4 December until 2 January.  To book, go to or call +33 (0) 1 30 84 51 20.
