The inside story

Located just over 30 miles north of Paris, the Château de Chantilly is a historic Château divided into the Petit Château built around 1560 for Anne de Montmorency and the Grand Château, which was destroyed during the French Revolution and rebuilt in the 1870s.

The château's art gallery, the Musée Condé, houses one of the finest collections of paintings in France. It specializes in French paintings and book illuminations of the 15th and 16th centuries.

The library of the Petit Château contains over 1500 manuscripts and 17,500 printed volumes, that is part of the collection of over 700 incunabula, and some 300 medieval manuscripts.

The main French formal garden, featuring extensive parterres and water features, was laid out principally by André Le Nôtre for the Grand Condé.

The estate overlooks the Chantilly Racecourse and the Grandes Écuries (Great Stables) which contains the Living Museum of the Horse.
