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.

About one hour from Paris, this Chateau and grounds is just lovely.It's a smaller, more intimate version of Versailles and that meant smaller crowds, less noise, and a greater opportunity to soak it all in. It was nice to see how the other half lived back in the day! As it's so close to Paris, I strongly recommend that you... More

This is a really stupendous place, with some fascinating exhibits and a marvellous collection of pictures, including some of great fame. This is a museum rather than a "lived-in" Château. The famous stables are amazing with an interesting Museum of the Horse. The grounds are extensive and well kept, although we did not have time to make full use if... More

My wife and I were staying at the hotel Auberge du Jeu de Paume, which backs onto the grounds of the chateau. Consequently we had the bonus of a third off the entrance ticket price. Having checked reviews on Tripadvisor before going, I decided to get a golf buggy as the grounds sounded huge; they are! On entering the grounds... More

The chateau is 45 minutes from Paris in RER, and is worth the visit. There is a very beautiful collection of art work, treasures, and a historic library that is unique. I learned things about the history of France during that period that I didn't know. For the kids there is an audio guide that makes the visit very exciting... More

In general the whole town Chantilly is dedicated to horses, horse rising, horse riding and horse dressing. As well and a castle. In spring time they are organizing some beautiful spectacles with kids participation, children are getting dressed in the dresses of the past times and discovering the huge rooms with stories about ancient times.

Very nice chateau. The crowds aren't bad if you go early. We went around noon. It was great, parking was easy.

I had to enter a rating but in reality I can't give one as the purpose of my review is to warn people so that they don't have the same experience we did. We turned up to find that there was a special event taking place ('Arts & Elegance') and that admission to the Chateau was only possible with a... More

We visited as part of a tour group on a Sunday and it was very busy in the chateau. More so than normal, apparently, so don't be put off. Give the that we were part of a group, I'm not sure what sort of costs are involved in a visit. The buildings - and there are a number - are... More
