Chantilly by train is only about 20 mins. from Paris....(north to be exact)....plus a little walk once you get to the town, onto the chateau....but well worth every step!!
It was a perfect day, not a cloud in the sky, although there was a definite 'chill' in the air, not to mention the frost on the ground!
I think the photographs of the chateau speak for themselves, it is a spectacular place to visit.
The chateau is surrounded by beautiful manicured gardens as well as natural grounds....these would take many, many hours....if not days to explore them all....but we made some wonderful discoveries of our own in the time we had available.....the second last photo is called 'The Isle of Love'....isn't it fabulous?
A "must see" when next in Paris!! (As you can see by the lack of people, we almost had the whole place to ourselves.....such a special place and another wonderful day here in France!!!)
....interior photos at another time....
