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.

While browsing for day trips from Paris in few sites, came across this place which is just 25 min by train from Paris Nord station[[Though never read the complete information, decided to cover the place, firstly because it's not too far from Paris & secondly, because the price of the ticket two-way is only 17 Eur/ person :->]].

The buildings, the art, and the beautiful grounds make this a worthwhile day trip from Paris. The Chateau houses one of the finest collections of paintings in France from the 15th and 16th centurys. The library of the Petit Château was very interesting. It contains over 1500 manuscripts and 17,500 printed volumes,

And it is a very good audio guide with good stories and interesting explanations and lots of options to listen to more details about... More

It was great. Nice surroundings and you can take a nice walk. Price is 14 euro per person, worth every euro. People should leave there kids at home though, very annoying to listen to kids cry in the museum.

If you look up Chateau Chantilly on line and go to 'Images' - your eyes are in for a feast. Beautiful pictures, historical paintings, priceless ceramics, magnificent architecture - glorious French gardens and a magnificent spiral staircase. I viewed these images for months - and then recently I was at Gare de Nord catching the train to Chantilly -- an... More

So off we went driving around the large traditional (french design) gardens, there are many water features and statues. there are many pools and canals... More

007 was filmed here and therefore a must see for us. It is a great castle, it has a great audio guide, a lovely chapel, and a great restaurant for lunch!

Excellent chateaux & gardens. If you want to include the horse museum allow a full day to do it justice.
