Chantilly, an exceptional city
The city of Chantilly has a rich historical heritage. Born from the castle, it gradually developed in the 18th century. Since the 19th century, the horse-riding industry has contributed to the city’s reputation.
The Domaine de Chantilly, an exceptional site
The heart of the Domaine de Chantilly, its castle is now home to the Condé Museum, the first museum (after the Louvre) of old paintings, dating from before 1850, in France. It is composed of more than ten rooms, and gathers more than 800 masterpieces of French, Italian, Flemish and English painting. The domain has other attractions: the horse museum and the 115 hectares of parks and gardens designed by Le Nôtre.
A fairy tale forest
Property of the Institut de France, the Chantilly Forest covers 6,300 hectares. It is home to a large number of deer, hinds, roe deer, wild boars, etc. But it is best known for its 47 kilometers of sandy paths, used as training tracks by the racehorses of the Chantilly equestrian center.
It can be traveled on horseback, on foot or by bicycle.
Equestrian disciplines, the soul of Chantilly
