Did You Know? Tiara Chateau Hotel Mont Royal Chantilly

By: Five Star Alliance

Back at the beginning of the last century, Fernand Halphen bought 12 acres of land close to Chantilly. The location was covered with ponds and meadows. His vision was to build a wonderful countryside residence on the highest wooded hillock. Halphen was a noted composer, in his time. He called upon architect Guillaume Tronchet and the best builders to construct a chateau that celebrated music on the inside and hunting, his other passion, on the outside. The chateau’s drawing rooms were dedicated to music, while the bas-reliefs on the facade conjured up the world of hunting. That chateau is now Tiara Chateau Hotel Mont Royal Chantilly.

Did You Know? Waterford Castle

Waterford Castle is located on a 310-actre private island that is nestled on Kings Channel. According to tradition a Monastic settlement existed on the Island sometime between the sixth and the eighth centuries. Two finds on the Island have lent substance to this: A Winged Angel dating from the 8th century and the crude carving of a Monk's head, which is now prominently displayed over the main entrance to the Castle, dating from the 6th century.
