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.

We landed in the town of Chantilly and had a very nice, quaint lunch at the cafe across from the station before hailing a cab to take up to the Chateau. The ride was 9... More

Went there with my wife for a visit from Paris. The castle is in Oise, you can get there by RER from Paris. Very nice gardens. You must attend a horse show too. You can find nice restaurants nearby for lunch.

A most beautiful Chateau, well worth a visit . Stunning gardens. Had nice lunch in restaurant. The Horse Museum was fascinating . Lucky enough to watch horses being schooled for their dressage . Good value as you can use tickets more than once which we did as there is a lot to see for one day .

Full of paintings ( second bigger after Louvre)) the library is incredible , the arquitecture and every room was thought carefully showing the interests of Condé . I really enjoyed the trip and everything in this short trip. Definetely it worth... More

Take the trouble to get up to Chateu Chantilly (prom Chantee) and spend the day wandering this amazing example of pre revolution splendor. Wander through the gardens and stroll up to the horse stables and take in the demonstration of these amazing animals. THEN reward yourself with afternoon tea in The Hamlet restaurant. Harmeau as they call it. Have the... More

Leaving from Gare Du Nord this spectacular chateau is only 40min from Paris. Steeped in history this chateau and is well with the visit albeit a bit pricey compared to other chateaus the upside is you don't have the huge crowds to contend with. The Grand Stables are located directly adjacent to the local racetrack.

The Chateau de Chantilly, also known as Domaine de Chantilly, is a beautiful place to visit with lovely formal and informal gardens, water features, museums, and the beautiful Chateau itself. There is lots of walking to do (if you wish) so bring sensible shoes. The Chateau itself is a museum showcasing an amazing collection of paintings and other art works,... More

This chateau is fantastic, really beautiful and easy to visit, just an hour by train from Paris. We arrived to the train station and took a taxi. The chateau wasn't crowded so it was even more pleasant to visit, the gardens are huge and you can rent a golf cart to visit it. I can describe how much I loved... More

We saw this on a Bond film and took a chance; what a delight! We got the train from Gard De Nord (30 mins) and then a 20 min light walk will show you views of the stunning stables. Keep walking and you'll see what is one of the most beautifully situated Chateau's I have ever seen! The audio tour... More

This chateau is just gorgeous, and the nearby stables amazing. Not as popular as Versailles, but every bit as interesting, I highly recommend visiting as an easy day-trip out of Paris. The exterior is striking with the lake surrounding much of the chateau. The interior is lavishly decorated, the chapel holds an interesting urn (look-into the history!), and they still... More
