Installing the first six hotel rooms at the future Hotel & Spa
Last Wednesday, six rooms were installed on the Château des Pères hotel-tree.
The rooms have been taking shape on the ground over the last few months. After all their aluminium covering was added, they were ready to be put onto the structure's concrete platforms.
A boom lift and 42-metre tall crane, which towered over the hotel's trunk, were used to install the first six room bubbles.
This painstaking work took six hours and was completed without a hitch thanks to the expertise of Legendre Group's construction team who had been preparing for this operation for several months.
The next 30 rooms will be installed progressively as the platforms and interiors are finished. All rooms should be in place within five to six months.
We are honoured that the TF1 channel was on hand to document this exciting phase as part of their coverage of our project.

Presenting Hôtel L’EssenCiel
After several months of work, the final bubble room has been placed on its branch at the highest point of the new Hôtel L’EssenCiel on the Château des Pères estate.
To celebrate this occasion, a press conference was held to present this unique building concept, which was conceptualised by Jean-Paul Legendre and designed by Anthony Rio, from Agence Unité architecture firm. It embodies the estate's bold, innovative spirit. The hotel is designed like a tree with each branch holding a suspended bubble. This concept is the first of its kind in France.
The 36 cocoon rooms are finally in place after many months of work. When it opens in Spring 2022, Hôtel L’EssenCiel will have 42 rooms of 26 m² with luxury amenities. The hotel will also have a spa with a pool, balneotherapy, sauna and hammam. Guests will be able to choose from three restaurants on the estate with different dining atmospheres.
Now that the rooms are in place, the next phase will begin with interior and exterior design. Interior architects, fitters, lighting designers and landscapers will take their turn to bring the tree to life. Check back in autumn to make your reservations.
