  • Not much to do at Chantilly, to hang out is fine. The facilities are nice. The Horse Show very very poor.

  • Cross the small park, and visit this Museum in the heart of the stables. Refined, accessible to children. A marvel also

  • Very nice stables next to the Castle. We quickly visited the horse museum but did not attend the show. The places are beautiful and you can sit on a bench to watch the dressage in the courses. The Café des stables allows you to take a short break in this exceptional place.
