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.

I have visited the castle few times and went back end of December , Still magnificent even in winter. The art collection is great , the library is amazing . Of course it is not the louvre ou Versaille but good enough for sure ....More

The chateau is the entire reason we came to Chantilly and it did not disappoint. It looks like a postcard! The inside was lovely. There's a very pretty chapel, a beautiful library, and some nice art work. There are even a couple of Rafael's! I...More

We drove past this Château without realising how amazing it was! We decided to get a day pass to see the spectacle show at the museum after, it was a long walk in the rain from the Car park which was €4 for the day,...More

Even in winter this magnificent Domain, with moat, lake and beautiful grounds, is a sight to behold. While the interior apartments do not compare to the grandeur of Versailles or some other stately homes, they possess their own elegance, charm and interesting history. There is...More

Chateau de Chantilly is a must visit stately home. In my view it is far superior to Versailles. It has a lovely ambience - gardens et al, and the audio guide is excellent. Chantilly is under a 30 minute train ride from Paris Gare du...More

The ticket was really good value. The chateau itself is astounding, not to speak of the largest collection of Old Masters in France outside the Louvre

I believe it is open all year round but would suggest you go on their website just to check. With regard to equestrian shows again their website may show.

I had a rental car, but you can take the train and either take a bus or walk to the castle from the train station.
