Tips from the community

Less than 30 minutes (or 50 kilometers) from Paris via train, discover the spectacular Château de Chantilly. This princely castle spanning the 14th to 19th centuries remains unchanged from 1886. Another chateau takes up residence on the same grounds, but this one is home to horses. The largest stables in Europe, the Great Stables offer equestrian shows throughout the year, as well as the Horse Museum dedicated to the relationship between man and horse. Stroll the vast gardens of the Château de Chantilly designed in three unique styles, including the French Garden created by André Le Nôtre in the 17th century, the Anglo-Chinese Garden in the 18th century, and the English Garden in the 19th century. Admire the lush landscape from the comfort of your own castle: the five-star Relais & Châteaux property, Auberge du Jeu de Paume. And don’t leave without tasting what the village is known for: Chantilly cream.
