An early 19th century building that could be transformed into offices in the midst of the historic district of Vichy.
Vichy, built on the banks of the river Allier, on the edge of the Limagne plain and the Bourbonnais mountains, is a candidate for classification as a World Heritage site by Unesco. Abounding in prestigious architectural and cultural heritage, it has been known for its springs since time immemorial. Near to the Art Nouveau opera house, the spa district and Europe’s biggest thermal spa centre. Just a stone’s throw from six English, colonial style chalets that accommodated Napoleon III and his imperial entourage. Vichy-Charmeil airport, which receives private flights from all over France and overseas, is 5 minutes away. The SNCF train station has links to Paris-Bercy taking less than 3 hours and 2-hour links to Lyon.
The “Hôtel Majestic”, an old luxury hotel built in the early 19th century by architects Moreau and Mignan, is emblematic of Vichy. Spanning a total of approx. 3,000 m² over two levels with a vast basement, this building stands in the centre of Vichy. It has been divided and separated by a patio. All that remains today are the reception room and the basement which included the restaurant kitchens.
Several doors provide access to the building and lead into the old hotel’s prestigious reception room. Double glazed doors, with fanlights, decorated with wrought iron bunches of grapes and ribbons, open into the main entrance hall. On either side are columns, topped with capitals adorned with scrolls. The back entrance is composed of a discreet door further along the street. A third entrance via the patio is protected by metal gates. This is the old passageway that led guests into the hotel. The last access is around the back of the building. It is protected by a plain wrought iron gate, facing the row of English style houses, constructed for accommodating the officers of the imperial guard.
The Pleiades RoomThis old reception room of the Majestic Hotel has been converted into a centre for training future professional dancers and dance teachers. Every year since 2005, it has held various classical jazz dance classes, taught by some of the greatest choreographers such as Rick-Odums or Alain-Gruttadauria. This vast room, with its numerous large picture windows, has a 9 metre high ceiling. It is richly decorated in the neo-classical style. Mirrors adorn the arcades, topped with lion’s heads and ribbons. They face the bow windows, of a similar size, opening on to the terrace and the parterre of flowers and shrubs.
Three original light fittings illuminate the gallery with its coving sculpted with flowers, foliage and ribbons. Columns topped with capitals complete the decor.
The upstairs is reached via two stairways that communicate on the first floor. A gallery provides access to offices, to bathroom and toilet facilities as well as to two old orchestra loggias. The ironwork on the balconies is sober. A second level makes it possible to reach a terrace with balusters that spans the full floor surface area of the building.
