Château de Chantilly – Before We Head In

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.

The gate to the chateau, which is also home to the highly regarded Musée Condé – one of the most noteworthy collections of art in France.

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.

Bonne journée!

  1. wonderful. Love these shots, and your comments. Pardon my ignorance but can you add a link sometimes to show where this is located? How cool that you have these days in your memory.

    1. Good morning, and thank you! I always add the option of location but the Theme I use doesn’t seem to include this in my posts (perhaps it’s possible, but I’m too technically daft to figure it out? 😋). Now that you’ve mentioned it, I will look into this because I’d like people, including myself, to see the location on a map.

    2. Update: I *think* that I’ve figured it out. If you don’t mind, I’d love for you to check the bottom of the post for the map (which, if I’ve done this properly you should be able to click on it to open it in another window for zooming in/out). Did it work?
