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's one of the most beautiful castles I've visited! Spacious park with carved bushes. The castle itself has rather complicated architecture, many rooms going one from another. Hundreds of masterpieces among which is Rafael and others. Everything is so old and breathes with history of French monarchy and its confidants. Hunting hall with lions' fells and home library are the... More

This is a beautiful Chateau that seems not to be know to the majority of tourists. The Chateau was feathered in the 1985 Movie James Bond " A view to kill". However it is a very quiet attraction (when we were there) and felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The main building houses a church, library, mini... More

I can't believe I'd ever say this: Richard Nixon was right. Chantilly is better than Versailles. Chantilly isn't just a spectacular building. Everything has been left as it was when the owner died. You really get a sense of the man's vision. What I was really surprised by was the size and quality of the art collection. The great masters... More

Enchanted, this is the word. The castle is only 1 hour driving from Paris, and it has a nice big domain as well. It is valuable not only for its architecture, very well preserved - but also due to the amazing art collection. Never seen so many paintings in one castle. Not to mention also the big library. It was... More

Even since Art History in college I've wanted to see the Tres Riche Heures of the Duke of Berry, so we included a trip to Chantilly to visit them. We were in Paris in early November and we took the train from Gare du Nord. We had gotten Paris Metro week passes (Navigo Decouverte) and they did take us as... More

The castle is charming. Not really large, but very well kept. The visits are well organized and some areas, like the library and a map room with battle descriptions, are quite beautiful. The art collection is a result of personal efforts of members of the family that owns the castle, so there is not really a thematic or conceptual line... More

I have been here several times with my wife and kids and each time is a pleasure. We once visited for the Richard Mille auto show which was amazing both in terms of the quality of the show and the quality of the presentation. Most recently we visited with my mother who enjoyed strolling through the lovely grounds and taking... More

This is a somewhat unusual castle as it is a bit smaller and less spectacular than some other French. A lot of attention is connected to the stables that we decided not to visit.

A good local spot to stop for an afternoon, they offer guided tours. Also the stables are unique and interesting, the grounds are easy to navigate.
