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.

The Chantilly castle is very close to Charles de Gaulle Airport. It hardly takes 20 minutes to get there. Having 3 hours spare time before taking-off, it proved a wonderful alternative to airport lounges! This castle and the related marvelous stables and gardens are true jewels in the middle of a fantastic forest. I remembered the James Bond movie, A... More

As part of your ticket to the castle you get a free audio guide which is always nice. The castle is full of artwork collected. I was amazed by the size and scope of different styles and artists. We ate lunch in the restaurant in the castle and it was delicious! Then we saw the stables and enjoyed looking at... More

The Chateau stands majestically in front of you surrounded by a moat. The interior rooms are unique and amazing. There are extensive gardens and woodlands and it is possible to take a small train tour of these (5€). Look our for the wallabies, including an albino one! Plenty if play areas for the younger members of your group. After visiting... More

My second visit to Chateau de Chantilly this year. Great private art collection to enjoy during the chateau visit. Make sure you also spend time out in the gardens. The restaurant on site provides a lovely, relaxing lunch.

Our desire to visit Chantilly was specifically for the Domaine not just the Château although the Château is the jewel on the crown. The site that includes a huge and splendid garden designed by Le Nôtre who also did Versailles is to be seen. Lots of walking but there is a mini-train available. Note that they give priority to groups.... More

The Chateau Chantilly was gorgeous to look at from the outside, but rather small on the inside -at least from what I was able to see. They had a special event in the morning so the chapel was closed off along with a couple other areas. They said I could come back around 2pm to see everything. They told me... More

Please, plan to spend the whole day here. If you don't, you'll miss a lot. The audio guided tour of the interior is excellent. Just go at your own pace. What a fascinating history too! There are extensive grounds to explore as well. Don't miss the museum of the horse in part of the old royal stables! However, the horse... More

If you are looking for a day trip out of busy Paris, somewhere dripping in the pomp and ceremony of history and with a dash of magic and beauty then this Chateau is certainly a great choice. A great place to wonder inside and out I particularly enjoyed the grounds with the huge moat, formal gardens and forest like grounds.... More

Visited on a warm spring day. Enjoyed the chateau and audio guide. Lots of groups today including school kids but not usually overcrowded in most rooms. For that reason and also for the relaxing picnic in the sun we will recommend it happily. It's perhaps not a fair comparison but Its more relaxing than Versailles for sure and doesn't require...
