Château de Chantilly Tour from Paris Including the Great Stables of the Prince de Conde and a Renaissance-Style Meal

6 h
About this activity
After hotel pickup, depart Paris for the drive to Château de Chantilly, the family estate of the Prince de Conde. 
Surrounded by picturesque forests and lakes, the Renaissance castle is an emerald in the crown of French aristocratic architecture, built in the middle of a reservoir with just once entrance across a bridge. Architects turned the castle into an expensive box of design delights with an endless kaleidoscope of visual reflections by balustrades, columns, exquisite stucco, and stone ornamentation. The grounds are just as impressive, full of sculptures by Italian masters of the Renaissance.
After visiting the castle, spend the second part of your tour at the Great Stables of the Prince de Conde. Horses have always been a big part of life at the castle; since the 17th century, Thoroughbred and draft horses were trained here for court ceremonies and other royal events. Today, the large stable is a modern equestrian center, where mares and stallions are bred, live, and train for international competitions and performances. You can also check out the Living Museum of the Horse.
Finally, enjoy a Renaissance-style meal. You'll be served a starter, main dish, dessert, and glass of wine at one of two beautiful restaurants at the castle, filled with the spirit of French history. Dishes might include French specialties like warm goat cheese salad, coquilles St-Jacques gratinée, and cocottes sucrées.
Your tour the ends with return to Paris for hotel drop-off.

We really enjoyed this tour...mainly because of our guides, Helen and Larissa. They took extra time to explain what we were seeing, as English audio-guides were not available for us all gone. They also tailored the tour to what we wanted to see the most. I commend them most highly. The food for our lunch was superb, and enjoyed tasting the Chantilly cream, and eating on site in the former kitchen of the chateau. The artwork in the chateau was most impressive. On the drive from Paris to Chantilly our guides gave us the history of the chateau and stories about it. We were pleased to see the horse show also, but recommend getting to the arena early, as seats were hard to find, and many families, couples, had to split up. Having said this, I believe the view is excellent everywhere in the arena. Again, without Larissa and Helen, this tour would not have been as enjoyable. Excellent guides!
