What a fantastic experience! We saw the castle and all the art galleries inside, the gardens, and all the domain with the ticket. It included everything. The structure of the court is impressive, and the view is magnificent. We saw all the rooms, and then we had a great lunch near the hammock where you could enjoy a great lunch outside. I recommend the strawberry tart with the whipped cream, which the legend says was invented in this region. Overall we had a great day. We visited the gardens afterward, which are unique. Near the hammock, there were sheep, horses, and a playground for kids near a lake. The view is fantastic! Great experience

Excellent, clean, well-run theme parc, with exciting rides for all age groups, attractive theming and good food. Convenient shuttle bus service between park and Paris / CDG Airport too. A MUST SEE attraction for any family visiting there Paris area.

Magnificent Chateau! Easy parking - thanks to the "skip-the-line" ticket, direct access to the castle. Not to be missed, the stables and a Chantilly dessert at the "Hameau"!

A castle transformed into a museum with a huge number of exhibits. Beautiful, well-kept gardens, an oasis of relaxation.

Beautiful chateau with a vendor of Chantilly cream in the garden Beautiful collection of earthenware and paintings
