Au revoir, crummy hotel. Your visit to France could soon include a night in the lavish Palace of Versailles, where King Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette slept hundreds of years ago.

Three buildings of the historic luxury playground will turn into a hotel and restaurant by 2018, The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month. Bonjour, luxury!

The Lov Hotel Collection, a French hotel group, will transform a corner of the Palace of Versailles into a 20-room oasis with a spa, underground pool and views of the gardens.

World-renowned chef Alain Ducasse -- who is known for his gourmet astronaut food, among other things -- will run an adjoining restaurant, Eater reports.

While not exactly an "off-the-beaten path" place to stay, the new Versailles hotel will be an excellent chance to sleep in an iconic piece of French history. Decor is expected to have a "traditional 18th-century look," Conde Nast Traveler reports. Bring on the gilded mirrors!

There's no word on pricing yet, but other hotels in the Lov Collection suggest rates will be fairly high: A standard room in Lov's La Bastide de Gordes hotel, for example, costs about $225 per night.

Hey, if this doesn't work out, you can always just sleep in a castle instead. 

Bon voyage!
