It is claimed that the former Champagne glasses were based on a moulding of one of Marie-Antoinette’s breasts. This is said to have been produced by an artist at the Manufacture de Sèvres who used her for inspiration when producing the glasses intended for the queen’s dairy at the Château de Rambouillet…
Florens-Louis Heidsieck, who founded his business in 1785, dedicated one of his wines to Marie-Antoinette.

The Marie-Antoinette bedroom is a delightful little boudoir in which the furniture, the marble fireplace, the accessories and the unimpeded view of the Lookout Tower and the towers dating from the 17th century offer a truly timeless experience. When you open the window, the forest almost seems to beckon you to enjoy a leisurely stroll through the Grande Allée or along the Chemin des Dames, which runs alongside pastures where animals graze.
In the warmth and comfort of your bedroom or from the terrace, you can also relax and watch the ceaseless comings and goings of the swans, herons and wild ducks which visit the ponds further downhill.
The decorative scheme for the Marie-Antoinette bedroom was chiefly achieved using antique furniture picked up here and there at various antiques fairs. Nevertheless, you will naturally also enjoy contemporary comfort at its best!
