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.

Absolutely well worth a day trip from Paris. A relatively quick train trip from Gare du Nord in Paris to Chantilly followed by a very picturesque stroll to the Chateau itself. Unfortunately it's not that well signposted from the train station but once you wander down a street you'll find the signposts. Took us about 15 minutes to walk to... More

The train from Paris to Chantilly is a very short, under 30 minutes, and enjoyable journey. The walk from the station to the chateau takes about 20 minutes, depending on which route you take. I arrived before the chateau opened, 10:30, so I was the first one in and had the place to myself...for about 20 minutes. But even still,... More

Went there by main line train from Paris (about 25 minutes) and walked along paths by the race course to get to the Chateau. Looked very grand from the outside. It has a moat too. But a sign at the gate announced in French and in English that the place was closed to the public in January 2017 for renovation.... More

Visited the Chateau in September of 2014, so forgive the late review, however, I was taken aback by how beautiful this Chateau was! We went early on weekday and had very little crowds to deal with which was a wonderful opportunity to really take in the amazing art collection housed within. I felt like I was in a mini Louvre!!...

Visited the Chateau and grounds as part off a tour and was suitably impressed with the magnitude and opulence of this grand building. Lots of French history extravagance on show a real eye opener. Worth a visit if you are visiting Paris very popular in the summer months expect crowds. Winter months might be a better alternative to avoid crowds.

We chose a day trip (half day trip really) to Chantilly when visiting Paris in December in order to save Versailles for nicer (garden appropriate) weather. The Chateau de Chantilly is conveniently reached on foot from the train station. I am an equestrienne and this is a great destination for those interested in horses (due to the horse museum). We...

We visited Paris when the weather was awful and so much was closed due to floods, this little day trip to Chantilly really made a nice day away from the wet city. The chateau is quite a walk from the station so wear comfy shoes, but it is totally worth it. There were quite a few school groups on our... More

I have visited this château many times over the years (inside and out) and still it strikes me as outstanding when I pass it on my way into Chantilly.

My family of five had a trip to France a week ago. We visited many castles in France, and this is one of the best and most interesting. We brought combined ticket for both the Chateau and horse museum.
