  • Such a beautiful place to spend an entire day 😍 You'll found there a huge collection of paintings, books and statues. Also, if the weather is good I recommend you to take a pique-nique outside and to have a long walk in the beautiful garden (if you have children you can also find kangaroo there). And if you go there, you HAVE TO TRY the CHANTILLY CREAM !!!!
  • Amazing place. Park is big with nice nature, animals, fountains and statues. Inside the castle looks also amazing with an art museum. Overall the castle is well restored and in good conditions. For sure 1day to visit is a good idea.
