Owner description: 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.

This is the home of a number of French paintings from the 15th and 16th centuries. The rooms are furnished and filled with all kinds of fun stuff to look at. The library is very impressive, as are the rooms. I would make a return visit. I would skip the equestrian stuff if that is not your interest. Parking is... More

When looking through manuscripts and paintings from 16th century France, i cannot feel admiration and at how things looked and were redesigned as this old castle complex was by the Montmorrency and Conde families, a short 25 kms from Paris The interior is stunning to the max, imposing in its grandeur and largeness, while outside the moat surrounding the chateau...

Really excellent cultural experience. Even open over Christmas holidays with a very good Botecelli exhibition. Lovely setting with the racecourse and stables.

Outstanding castle and collection to visit. The castle is a must do if you are in the area. For groups, it is possible to organise a private visit which is a delight. Enjoy the tour!

My husband and I toured the Chateau on a rainy day in July and thoroughly enjoyed it! The self-guided tour was easy with the headsets provided at the entrance so we could both go at our own pace. We loved learning about the history of the Chateau and area in general. Following our tour of the Chateau, we walked downtown... More

This grand chateau is now part of the public domain by virtue of the generosity of the the Duc d'Alumale and what a legacy of art, and history. You can see this mueum the chateau and the Mueum of the Living Horse all in the one place. Just Fabulous. glendon1954.wordpress.com

We took the train at Guard du Nord, and then a cab to the castle. We arranged for the taxi to pick us up later. The collections are superb. Do not miss the Apartments tour. The restaurant is ok, and the restrooms are perfect. Save time to visit the Horses' Museum. A fabulous visit. France at its best. On Mondays... More

We had wanted to visit Chantilly for several decades, just never had the right push to get us to go. Would I have appreciated it as much as a younger me? Not so sure I could have. You should have some travel stories behind you as this city of Chantilly might overwhelm. The Chateau is magnificent to see as you... More
