The palace is beautiful and the place is like staying one night in the place and then doing the tour! The only thing is that you have to get to the place and if it is difficult to get there, it would be better if the same agency took you.

Great experience. It was a beautiful day, the castle and its huge and beautiful park must be visited. A tip, try to book the restaurant in the castle because at 14 the kitchens are closed, even in the restaurants of the town.

The castle is beautiful there were almost no people! When we left the castle, we went out to the gardens with a beautiful view of the castle. I felt like I was in a 100% recommended movie.

Chateau de Chantilly is beautiful. Plan to spend at least a few hours there. The grounds are lovely and the surrounding town is quaint.

Exceptionally well-preserved interior and beautifully landscaped garden and park.
