Although sweet whipped cream, lace, and horses may appear to have nothing in common, they're all actually part of the heritage of Chantilly, France. This provincial town, located in the metropolitan area of Paris, is home to the lovely Château de Chantilly with its incredible art works at the Condé Museum. Chantilly hotels have a charm of their own, and give you a chance to catch your breath after a long flight.
To explore Chantilly, book a flight into Charles de Gaulle Airport, located approximately 18 miles from the town. The quickest way to travel to Chantilly is by rental car, and all the major companies have facilities at the airport. Alternatively, catch a taxi from the official taxi ranks outside terminals one, two, and three. If you take a taxi from the airport, you can always book rental cars in Chantilly to journey further afield.
Once you're settled into one of the hotels in Chantilly, make your first stop the Château de Chantilly (check opening times before your visit). Originally constructed in the 1500s, the chateau was entirely rebuilt in 1881 after it was destroyed during the French Revolution. Attractions include the art gallery and museum with thousands of paintings (and at least 10 masterpieces), archaeological artifacts, a guided tour of the apartments, and exquisite formal gardens. Watch the equestrian show at the Great Stables, and visit the Living Museum of the Horse. Racing enthusiasts enjoy race days at Chantilly Racecourse, and if you need some exercise, walk or ride a horse along the trails of the peaceful Chantilly Forest. If you're traveling with children, visit Potager des Princes, with its various styles of gardens including water features, birds, and an animal park. If you're fascinated by engineering, pop into Pavillon de Manse, which houses the renovated 17th-century machinery that fed water into the lakes and fountains of the chateau.
