Full Description of the Half-day Chantilly Castle Private Tour

 

Start your day with a pick up at your hotel in Paris by your private driver. Enjoy the landscape during a 1 hour drive to reach the magnificent 18th century Castle of Chantilly nestled in the largest forested areas on the outskirts of Paris and without a doubt an overlooked gem of the French heritage. It is not only home to one of the most beautiful stables in Europe, the Great Stables of the Princes of Condé, but also to the Musée Condé, the second largest collection of antique paintings after the Louvre.

Visit around the Castle and its grounds with your private guide. Admire the art collection of Duke of Aumale (the son of Louis Philippe, the last king of France), with masterpieces of Raphael, Poussin, Delacroix and other Old Masters laid out all over the walls of splendid luxurious art galleries. Stroll around the large and private suites overflowing opulence, with exquisite decorative arts, furniture and wall paintings intended for majestic receptions inviting all the aristocratic elites.

 

'Le Parc de la Faisanderie' (The Pheasant park) This magical garden has been revived recently with several re-creations: the Prince's' kitchen garden, orchard, fantasy garden, a unique hen house with 20 different breeds and some 'ornamental gazebo' sheltering pigeons presented by 'style': curly, peacock, fantail, capuchin... a delight for young kids and adults too.

 

Lastly, visit the largest stables of Europe, The Great Stables of the Princes of Condé. Depending on the time and season you can assist to an Equestrian Show (see details below). You can end your 'Chantilly Castle Private Tour' visit at the Horse Museum, which exposes the relationship between men and horses or simply enjoy a walk along the symmetric pathways of the french-style gardens designed by André Le Notre.
