Escape Paris and its crowds for a few hours to discover the fairylike domain of Chantilly: a green hidden gem located only 1 hour away from Paris! You must have heard of Versailles Palace or the Loire Valley castles but trust us, going to Chantilly will be an amazing experience. You and your family will be able to discover an immense domain and a splendid chateau that gave its name to the famous whipped cream. It will be a real delight!
Your private family-friendly guide and chauffeur will meet you at the place of your choice in Paris for an incredible 6-hour trip to Chantilly. Hop into an air-conditioned van with a chauffeur and enjoy a short and comfortable 60-min ride to the city of Chantilly.
You will first visit the castle: a beauty that was built during the Middle Ages but was entirely redesigned in the 19th century. It hosts beautiful 18th century decor and welcomes the second largest art collection of France after the Louvre! But this isn’t just any castle visit- it’s a treasure hunt! To explore this castle in an entertaining way, your kids will be tasked with finding magical numbers throughout the castle. To find them, your Welcomer will give them clues in envelopes. Each number found will unlock the next clue. Once all the magical numbers have been collected, the treasure will be revealed!
We will continue the journey to a horse-lover’s heaven: the Great Stables! And not just any stables, they are the largest stables in Europe! You will be awe-inspired by this magnificent horse palace where you will see athletic horses, cute ponies, and even donkeys!
Take a day off Paris for a wonderful afternoon to Chantilly Castle with your family!
It will now be time to enjoy a playful ride in the Chantilly grounds via tuk-tuk or Segway, and admire the French-style gardens designed by Le Nôtre, the gardener who created the gardens of Versailles. You will also get to see the English and Anglo-Chinese gardens, two wonders in the heart of a stunning park, all while cruising in a tuk-tuk or on a Segway.
For this fun ride you can choose between a 60-min tuk-tuk ride or, if your kids are over 12, hop on Segways for a 45-min more adventurous discovery.
Last but not least, you will have deserved a yummy break to taste what Chantilly is also famous for: its whipped cream! Enjoy a tasty pastry or ice cream covered with home-made whipped cream in a lovely setting: an 18th century hamlet that inspired Marie-Antoinette’s Hamlet in Versailles. The day has flown by and it’s time to go back to Paris. You and your family (and your belly!) will remember this day for a very long time, guaranteed!
