A Night at Versailles

I'm a huge fan of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette as well as the fashion and decor of the time. So I just about fell out of my chair with delight (and excessive daydreaming) after reading that Versailles is opening its doors to stay the night next year! It's not the actual palace itself, but the mansion on the grounds called the Hotel du Grand Controle.

From the Npr Article:
"In January 2012, when the Hotel de l'Orangerie is completed, overnight guests will be able to drink champagne and stroll in the gardens of Versailles for the first time in 300 years."

Time to start saving!
