Château de Chantilly, located a short train ride from Paris, makes for an enjoyable day trip. But before we head into the chateau, I thought we’d take a walk around the impressive property.
I’ve taken a lot of photos and struggled to pare them down. But I don’t think anyone will blame me once you see how striking the features are.
Canadian Geese! In France!
This never gets old.

Release the hounds!
Clearly this statue has zero issues with body confidence.
Here’s the view when looking at the underside of the domed roof at the chateau entrance pictured above.
The grounds of the chateau (Domaine de Chantilly) cover a staggering 115 hectares. Between the jetlag and the heat of the day, it was decided to only visit the Chateau before finding something to eat.
Okay, so let’s go check out this chateau and see if it lives up to its hype. If the outside is any indication, I’d say that we’re in for a treat.
