Château Voltaire
A 5-star hotel in Paris

The soul of a place

Château Voltaire is a very personal project. Thierry Gillier wanted to give back to Paris a little of what this city had given him by creating a place that brings together and celebrates everything that makes the capital so magical and its power of attraction unique in the world: historical depth, meaningful beauty, hospitality and celebration, good taste, ideas, culture, elegance, refinement and the art de vivre.

An indefatigable traveller and compulsive curious visitor, Thierry brought back from his many sojourns throughout the world a wealth of aesthetic and emotional inspirations. Over time, his dreams have taken the form of a hotel where people can come from all over the world to experience the joys of Paris. A location in a district full of heart, entirely dedicated to true hospitality, a place where guests can feel both at home and at the same time carried away by a whirlwind of encounters, discoveries and happy surprises.

Thierry Gillier entrusted the realisation of this dream to Franck Durand. The artistic director surrounded himself with talented people, the foremost of whom was the Festen interior design duo. All were carefully chosen for their ability to understand and translate the uniqueness of this project and the passion behind it.

Over the years, the family kept growing as the dream took shape. From the Émil restaurant to the top floor apartment, and from the bar La Coquille d'Or to the 32 rooms, all unique, spread over 5 floors, everywhere you can feel that Château Voltaire was born first and foremost from the happiness of being together. It is a magnificent declaration of love for Paris and for life.

Château Voltaire - Hôtel

A privileged address

Its unique architecture, which combines three buildings dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as its interior design created by the Festen agency, pay tribute to the Parisian art de vivre while participating in its reinvention by giving back a place to fun and fantasy. At Château Voltaire, you will find even more than what you want: you’ll find what you dream of!

Inspired by the iconic 16th century motif adorning one of the corners of the building, La Coquille d´Or (the Golden Shell) is establishing itself as the most prestigious new rendezvous in the Saint-Honoré quarter.
