Second major innovation of the year 2020: a new hotel in tribute to the Sun King. This sixth hotel classified 4 stars is already under construction and aims to plunge visitors to the park in the pomp of Versailles. A 20 million euro castle inspired by Marly, which Louis XIV had built “for friends”, and that the general manager of the park already qualifies as “Petit Versailles”. The 96 rooms of this royal residence will be divided into eight pavilions, surrounded by three hectares of gardens as beautiful as those of André Le Nôtre.
A theater for business seminars
Finally, beyond its usual visitors, the park also thinks of its business customers. Indeed, we know little, but professionals are numerous each year to wish to organize their business seminars. Attached to the luxurious hotel under construction of “Petit Versailles”, we will find a convention center, called “Théâtre Molière”.
To strengthen this business activity throughout the year, the Puy du Fou has decided to invest 10 million euros to build a space dedicated to corporate events on 3,500 square meters, with an auditorium of 500 seats. With these large-scale investments, the goal is clear for the president of the park, he wants the Puy du Fou to become “the world reference in the live show”.
