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.

It is an absolutely beautiful castle. The audioguide really does come in handy to explain the history of the castle and the significance of each room. It has a large painting collection. The gardens and the water features were absolutely an awe factor. There was a small outdoor restaurant in the garden called Hameau, a short walk from the castle,... More

Got to Chantily and looked in the bus park beside railway station for the shuttle bus to chateau but nothing and just missed a service bus with next nearly an hour so a quick look at Gogle maps and off we walked.

Gorgeous place with very interesting collections of paintings and art. Highly recommended and do not forget to enjoy the parc around it. The labyrinth is fun.

We really enjoyed our day trip. The grounds are stunning and the scale was breath taking... I particularly enjoyed the Anglo-Chinese garden. The water features were beautiful.

The Château de Chantilly with the neighbouring horse muséum are well worth a visit. There is so much to explore that you need a full day to really appreciate the grounds and gardens as well as the building itself and that is before you take the muséum in the château itself, the exhibition areas and the horse muséum and shows....

We were there for the Chantilly triathlon. The setting is beautiful and we swam in the lake for the race. Unfortunately we never made it inside to look at the arts, but our friends did and said it's totally worth it.

Take a picnic, find somewhere secluded and be prepared to walk at least a mile or more to see all that is here; and then wonder if it was worth it. Visited in August and although we had to queue for about 20 mins to pay to enter, the grounds are so large that the crowds at the entrance disappear... More

A lot to see, impressive art collection, English audio guide was good. Gardens were good to walk around. Had an excellent lunch at the rustic cottage out in the gardens. Wasn't too crowded on a Friday in July. Got the train from Paris, about a 30 minute walk around or take the right of way through the back strait of... More

The Musee de Conde is housed in the Chateau De Chantilly. It is an excellent art collection. We enjoyed viewing the chateau, the art collections, and the grounds. We took the English tour of the Duke and Duchess' rooms. We had an excellent tour guide who was able to answer every question we had. He really made the visit spectacular.... More

The castle is pretty and the grounds are pleasant. Take your time and listen to the audio tour as you will learn quite a bit. You will see many paintings and personal items during your visit. There are not the heavy crowds like Versailles, so you'll have plenty of room and time. The train ride was pleasant too. Get there... More
