An impression of history
From the Middle Ages to this day
This 4-star boutique hotel on the banks of the Loire, has been created within an elegant 19th century residence, fully renovated by the premises' owners.
The restoration work took place alongside an archaeological dig organised by the city of Orléans. This revealed the history of the building which dates back to the Middle Ages. As far back as the 9th century, the Châtelet fortress was the royal and then ducal administrative headquarters. Built beside the city wall, the fortress occupied a strategic position and controlled access to the bridge. It was surrounded by the Châtelet neighbourhood where all the town's main markets were to be found - an activity which survives to this day as can be seen by the Halles du Châtelet and the many shops and stores nearby.
In the 19th century, the Châtelet was sold to Benoist Lebrun who decided to pull it down to create a thoroughfare along the quay. The château's architecture changed along with its function and it took on the aspect we see today. It housed the Labour Exchange for a while before being converted into a boutique hotel.
After the kings of France and the dukes of Orléans, you now have a chance to stay on the site in this historic residence in a hotel renovated with the greatest respect for its history.
