Le Domaine de Chantilly s'etend sur 7 800 hectares au sein de l'une des plus grandes forets des environs de Paris. Il est compose du chateau et de son musee Conde, du parc et de ses jardins, des grandes ecuries et de leur musee du cheval. Constitue depuis le Moyen-Age par les differents proprietaires (Anne de Montmorency, les Bourbon-Conde dont le Grand Conde, cousin de Louis XIV, Henri d'Orleans, duc d'Aumale), cet ensemble represente donc un patrimoine aux facettes multiples et le plus grand exemple en France d'un domaine princier. Le chateau abrite le Musee Conde, lequel est constitue des appartements princiers, d'une collection exceptionnelle de peintures - plus de 800 chefs d'oeuvres d'artistes tels que Botticelli, Raphael, Poussin, Delacroix - qui en fait le premier musee de peintures anciennes (avant 1850) en France apres le musee du Louvre et d'une bibliotheque et d'archives qui conservent plus de 13 000 ouvrages dont le manuscrit le plus precieux au monde : "Les Tres Riches Heures du duc de Berry". Le parc offre quant a lui un panorama grandiose de l'art du jardin occidental : jardin a la francaise dessine par Le Notre au XVIIe siecle, le Hameau qui inspira Marie-Antoinette, le jardin anglo-chinois du XVIIIe siecle, et le jardin anglais du XIXe siecle.

I recommend the visit of the castel, it is very close to Paris and has beatiful collection of paintings. The gardens are also a must. The horse stables also something to see. You can spend a whole day there.

We took an easy train ride then a cab out to the Chantilly Chateau just north of Paris. Far less crowds than the Louvre and with an amazing art collection including works by Raphael and Botticelli. A great treasure for the French people. Purchase the audio guide and explore the amazing Chateau. The gardens are wonderful as well.

This castle has to be seen. First, the grounds are beautiful. I love the moat, the two bronze statues representing lovely dogs but mainly I was impressed by the architecture which is rich. This castle is very well preserved. I did not get to explore the horse stables which are renowned due to lack of time. Inside you will find... More

The Chantilly castle was part of the set of the James Bond movie "A View to a Kill". It is accessible by train from Paris. A 20 minute walk will bring you to the castle. Beside the castle, you can also visit the magnificent stables. Take 4 hours if you want to visit both in a suitable way. Inside the... More

We had never head of Chateau de Chantilly before and didn't know what to expect. The buildings are very ornate and beautiful. The art collection is superb and the horse museum is very interesting. We ate in the restaurant and it was delicious. It is told that is is the first place to have served whipped cream. We tried the... More

Absolutely stunning property that sits about 30 minutes outside of Paris. The property sits off the main thorough fare and the drive up to the propery is surrouded by nature that is just magnificent. The property illuminated with beauty from the outside to the inside. The service was impeccable. The rooms are spacious and decorated lovely. The beds are a... More

We came here because of the horse museum as my daughter is a rider. The chateau was pretty but the people there were not very accommodating. The guides were not available in English but every other language. The audio guides were also only in other languages. The chateau had many beautiful pieces on display.

Enchanting! from the moment you see it as you drive to the parking lot, it is now a museum, Musee Conde, as its last owner bequeathed this wonderful estate to the country, he was quite the collector of antiquities in the library you can feast your eyes with books filled with illuminations, including miniature ones.

Great place to spend a day to explore. Short train ride from Paris city centre. Check out the painting within the chateau. Walk around the area to see interesting things around. E.g. maze with interesting information, playground, etc. Can also see swans and their nests at some corners. Please enjoy your lunch at Le Hameau - great main course. Good... More
