What to expect

In the French region of Hauts-de-France is a fabulous castle built over more than 5 centuries that has nothing to envy those of the Loire: the castle of Chantilly. A true sample of French Renaissance heritage, the current castle was built on a former medieval fortress for Henri d´Orléans, son of King Louis-Philippe I. It houses the Condé Museum, where the rich collection of paintings by the Duke of Aumale is exhibited, which includes paintings by great masters such as Raphael, Fra Angelico, Poussin, Ingres and Watteau. The Chantilly estate in Oise, just 40 km from Paris, also houses the Horse Museum, in homage to the original site on which it was built (Grandes Ecuries). The park, one of the most gardens designed by Le Nôtre, is very well laid out and offers several activities for the whole family such as games and horse shows.

Opening hours

Open every day except Tuesday from 10am to 6pm (8pm for the park)

Magnifique château extérieur comme intérieur. Un très grand parc pour se promener, très agréable par beau temps. Pour midi, nous sommes allés manger au restaurant du hameau, bien manger et serveuse très sympathique. Seul regret, étant de passage trop court pour tout voir en une demie journée.

We go to the Chantilly estate to spend a beautiful day in the heart of nature with family or lovers of French heritage. There is something to do between the gardens, a visit to the castle, the Condé museum, the royal stables and why not its forest. With large areas of wooded lawns with splendid views of the Grand Canal, this is an ideal excursion for a picnic in the countryside with the family. A half-day visit is quite possible, especially in summer when the park remains open until 8 p.m.

For those for whom the car is not an option, it is quite possible to get to the Château de Chantilly by public transport by taking the TER from Gare du Nord (about 25 minutes) or the RER D (about 45 minutes). From the Chantilly-Gouvieux stop, you can reach the estate via the DUC (Desserte Urbaine Cantilienne), a free shuttle provided by the city of Chantilly or bus n ° 15 to Senlis. You can opt for the walking tour of about 20 minutes.

If you are not a picnic fan, you can eat around a good lunch or order your snack in the 3 restaurants located in the castle, in the estate and in the courtyard of the stables.

The Chantilly estate is an ideal site for a family outing. Audio guides specially designed for children are available at the entrance counters and entertainment is provided for children of all ages.

You can try to get out of the labyrinth of the Princes, an immense plant maze of 4,000 m2. Meet at the Petit Parc which welcomes sheep and wallabies (a kind of kangaroos). In addition, bicycles, scooters, carts, electric boats or Segways® are available for hire.
