"Visit the Chateau de Chantilly" Day Trip - Chantilly & Château de Chantilly Tip by hquittner

  Entry Chateau de Chantilly
by hquittner

The small town (10.2k pop.) of Chantilly is easily reached from Paris as a day trip. Although only 45 km from Paris , it is outside the Ile de France (in Picardie) and one takes the SCNF from the Gare du Nord. The train takes 25+ minutes. A bus awaits outside for Senlis (10 km and 25 minutes away). This bus stops after 3 km at the Port St.-Denis which is the entry to the Chateau. A hardy person could plan to visit both Senlis and Chantilly in one day but we prefer to go to nearby places like this as part of planned trips where we use them as first of last night stop-overs with a car, eliminating Paris entirely. (See our Tips under Chantilly/Picardie).
