Château de Chantilly

Yesterday we decided to go for a drive to Chantilly which is approx 25km away from Central Paris and in particular to the Château de Chantilly which was the home of the princes of Condé, cousins of the kings of France. Château de Chantilly is pretty famous as having the most luxurious royal horse stables in the world (Grandes Ecuries) as well as one of the finest museums of historical paintings in France (after the Louvre), a vast estate of 9500 acres and beautiful gardens.

It was such a beautiful place, not just the château but the town as a whole! After walking around the estate for like 3 hours it was near closing time and we decided to go for dinner at one of the many brasseries and ate one of the most yummiest mixed omlettes and salad I’ve ever had :dance:

I’ll leave you now with a selection of photos I took, there are more over at my flickr account which you should check out ;)
