The location was covered with ponds and meadows. His vision was to build a wonderful countryside residence on the highest wooded hillock. He and his wife were both enchanted by the breathtaking view.Tiara Chateau

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.

New to Five Star Alliance: Hotel Molitor Paris


By: Five Star Alliance

Those who saw the award-winning movie Life of Pi (or read the book) will remember the legendary pool Piscine Molitor. The book and movie's hero was named Piscine Molitor, because his father wanted him to be as clean as the pool's water. Pi later shortened his name due to teasing at school. In addition to being featured in Life of Pi, Olympic gold medalist and future Tarzan actor, Johnny Weissmuller, was once a lifeguard at the pool. In a photoshoot held at the pool in 1946, the modern bikini was revealed for the first time. The pool also used to double as a skating rink in the winter. In 1989, the pool closed due to lack of funds, and the site became a magnet for graffiti artists.  

Hotel Molitor Paris

After 25 years, the pool was recently reopened as part of the new Hotel Molitor Paris. With views of the summer pool, the 124 rooms at the 5-star MGallery hotel invite you to discover this wonderful location: enjoy relaxing in the spa, swim in the indoor pool, share a cocktail on the rooftop or savor the menu dreamt up by 2 generations of Meilleurs Ouvriers de France. Relax: you are at the Molitor.
