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.

Nice architecture,picturesque surrounding. The castle is by the horse-racing track and has a lake just in front, making it look really beautiful. Please visit prior to 5 pm

What a gem! As good as any National Trust property at home. Bequeathed in the will of the son of the last king of France with all its contents, collections and works of art still in place as they were when he died. (Similar to NT properties in many respects) fantastic and well worth a visit. Information in several languages... More

Very nice place. Similar to Versailles, but since we were going back north, this stop was more convenient. You will need at least 2 hrs just for the chateau, 1 more hour for the park and another hour for the stables - if you are not staying for the show. All places were very nice. I wish they will have...

This is a beautiful chateau with sprawling gardens and on a sunny day, it just looks stunning. After a tour inside the chateau one can hire a golf cart buggy and drive around the estate which is an amazing way to get around the place Incase your tired of walking. There are also a couple of restaurants in the estate... More

Very beautiful place. The gardens, museum, horse show and castle are all very nice and worth seeing and only a short trip out of Paris (1 hour on a tour bus). We did a whole day tour, which puts you on site for a 6.5-7 hours. We found this to be a bit too long, so recommend a half day... More

Makes Versailles look a bit ordinary at times. An excellent presentation of the material plus a really good little gift shop tucked away in the basement area. The grounds , with the contrasting English and French gardens were worth it on their own.

We were staying in a hotel near Chantilly and were advised to visit the chateau by friends who frequently visit the area. The chateau is beautiful, amazingly decorated with incredible works of art. To appreciate it you need to allow several hours. The stable block is interesting and if you get chance to experience the musical equine extravaganza then take... More

Beautiful building + parkland. Interesting art collection with very knowledgable guides, some of whom speak very good English. Well worth a visit.

Grounds and gardens amazing, there is a wonderful restaurant on site in the chateau where you can have a typical French lunch or tea and cakes after 3pm, the chateau is full of French history.

A beautiful chateau in a chaming location. The price is a little expensive to just visit the chateau but I spent a wonderful 3 hours just enjoying the marvellous art and artefacts that the chateau has to offer. I would definately visit again if I have the opportunity as I didn't have the time to visit the park properly, It... More
