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.

We enjoyed our day away from Paris in the adorable town of Chantilly. Be forewarned, they really do not use much english in this part of France! Thankfully we were prepared for that. The chateau is a nice 20 minute walk from the train station. Walking through the Chateau is so lovely, hardly crowded on a July day, and there... More

The Chateau de Chantilly is beautiful. The presentation and information in many languages was done very well. I would have liked to have seen more of the building though, however this was not open to the public. The restaurant was a very pleasant surprise; I was expecting a basic café and found a lovely quality restaurant in lovely surroundings. I... More

We enjoyed walking around the grounds of the Chateau of Chantilly. Notice the symmetry of the large water garden after the entrance. We didn't have time to tour the Chateau. Entry to the park itself seemed a bit pricy, so we chose to walk through instead of paying even more to take the little train (it leaves on the hour).... More

What a BEAUTIFUL place! I do say you need more than just one day to see all there is to see here, especially if you also want to experience the Musée du Cheval. The art collection at the Condé is really spectacular. The only difficulty is where to focus your eyes first as some of the rooms are just PACKED!... More

an ideal location close to Paris, convenient parking. area is ideal for long and relaxing walks. inside a magnificent collection of paintings. the weekend a lot of visitors, so the best time in the morning or evening, it is better to stay in the town overnight, so there are a lot of interesting places and an abundance of parks

Garden is very huge. If you have time its really worth to see and go arround. But there must be more banks to seat on the garden.

An absolute must see when visiting the quaint town of Chantilly just north of Paris in the countryside. The architecture is astounding. Details of the building were not available at time I visited however sure they are earlier in the day!

Start your tour by renting a self drive buggy which will allow you to see the beautiful gardens and have a good view of the castle from different angles. You need to sign a form and leave your driving licence as guarantee. 32 Euros for an hour for five of us. Then visit the Chateau of the Prince de Conde.... More

Freedom to wander the grounds at my leisure. They have a season pass available so you don't have to stand in the ticket lines with the summer tourist crowds.
