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.

Chateau de Chantilly had a number of predecessors before this building finally landed in the 19th-century. Its Renaissance style exterior sits well within the water gardens designed by Le Notre. The last owner made it a true treasure house with paintings by Raphael, Poussin, Botticelli and Ingres, to name but a few. The most precious item is a book, Les... More

At 17 euros just for the visit, one would expect the place to be impeccable in every aspect. While it is a beautiful place and well worth visiting, I don't see how they justify the price tag. My biggest complaint here is lack of signage; first of all, there is no sign that actually indicates the main entrance to the... More

Stumbled across th chateau on the way out of Chantilly. Surrounded by huge park land and area of natural beauty, very busy with cyclists, walkers, etc. Quite expensive to get in (other attractions seem to be free for the under 18's and under 26 whilst we are still part of the EU). Cost 55 euros for a family ticket plus... More

If you are in the area, this is well worth a stop! You need almost the whole day to take it all in....it is stunning! Huge castle and horse stable and horse show if you are interested. Does cost money to get it....but it is well worth it! Check out the architecture and the art gallery! Old furniture, old dishes,... More

I knew little about this place. It beats Versailles and the famous Loire chateaux hands down (fabulous art collection)

Having seen aerial views on the website this was well worth the two and half hour drive from our hotel base in Le Touquet - and we only viewed the park. Incredible architecture and fantastic landscape. Will deffo look to see inside the chateaux next time. Well recommended and a fab local ice cream topped with chantilly cream capped off... More

A great excursion for a British family to do on the last day of a trip to Paris. My wife, son and I checked out of our hotel, took the RER to the Gare du Nord, left our luggage in lockers, then took a train to Chantilly-Gouvieu (just 28 minutes away). You can then walk through the woods to the... More

As I said, it was somewhat smaller in person than I expected. It is also quite far from public transport and the bus from the station is not advertised well. The walk there was still great though and a worthwhile experience. The inside is also quite impressive for its size. The library is gorgeous.

Fascinating tour of the rooms, very well worthwhile. We also toured the grounds on a 'petit train' then walked to a restaurant in the grounds. Close to Paris, an easy journey
