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.

Still beautiful, after many visits

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.

We brought a family ticket for both the Chateau and horse museum. We purchased this at the horse museum entrance for 45 Euro. We decided to look around the Chateau first. The grounds and building is kept in very good condition. We used the audio guidance system (kids one keeps them entertained by looking for things in each room) The... More

Not crowded at all given beginning of low season. Had some difficulty figuring out where to park. Private bedroom tour 3 euro each additional well worth it. At 3 pm my wife and I were the only ones on this 35 minute tour.

We have visited many chateaux in France, and this is one of the best presented, and most interesting. While it is spectacular from the approach, it is what is inside that is wonderful. The interiors are very well preserved, and the exhibits of paintings, antiques, porcelain, miniatures, weapons, furniture etc are fantastic. If you like art and antiques, you could... More

Whilst on holiday in France I chose Chantilly as my choice for our day out. The Château looked amazing from the outside so we parked and went to buy tickets. I think it was about 45€ for 2 Adults 1 student and 1 child and we paid for our parking at the same time. There were toilet underground which were... More

So many antiques have been collected. Nice scenery ! The place is so big, it will take you about 3-4 hours to walk through.

Perhaps the most beautiful chateau we saw during our visit, the view reflected on the water was breathtaking and the chateau itself was wonderful. Nice town near the environs also.

This is a great show set in the grounds of the chateau. 100s of stalls selling plants, ornaments, statuary etc. Free parking and free entrance to the chateau and museum included in the 20 euro entrance fee (17 euros in advance). Worth every penny (cent!). Already on my list for the spring show.

We took the train from Paris to Chantilly with no problems. The day we were there, Friday, October 14, 2016, they were having a plant sale on the grounds. Vendors were selling plants, yard things and landscaping services. We enjoyed that as well as the Chateau. The Chateau was amazing. We got off the train and walked down a tree... More
