The property is extremely impressive. The nature all around magical. It's so big that it's not easy to find your way around. We found the entrance fee absolutely reasonable. The prices in the restaurant extremely overpriced! Asking 14 euros for the well-known strawberry cake with a dab of cream on top is almost outrageous. A bottle of water costs 8 euros. All in all, absolutely worth a visit.

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.

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

It was a pity that the park closes at 20.00. But if not all was great!

was a very nice trip, especially for horse lovers who like to walk.
