Chantilly Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 158 photos

introduction + background

I visited Chantilly in July 09, the main reason being to go horse racing at the Hippodrome de Chantilly - see my sports tip.

I also took the opportunity to visit the Château and Parc - that comes under the "things to do" section.

I spent the night in nearby Senlis, so take a look at that page if you're looking for accommodation ideas (and a flavour of Senlis itself).

I flew into Beauvais Airport and rented a car to travel the rest. It is also easily accessible from the A1 (Paris - Lille autoroute), and by train from Paris.

The Château etc is fabulous, and really I need another full day there to see the rest of the building (I had to skip the private apartments), the rest of the gardens and the stables.

The horse racing is worth going back for too!

I'd also like to see the village itself, and some of the environs.

The area is popular on Sundays, so best to choose your day. Maybe midweek outside the peak season, to get the best out of it.

Pros and Cons
