I took a little day trip to Chateau de Chantilly yesterday with friends, to take advantage of the glorious sunshine and have a picnic with a view. After visiting the Chateau, which is like a mini Versailles and a lot less touristy, we whiled away a few hours in the grounds having a picnic and napping in the sun. The perfect Sunday afternoon.
Chateau de Chantilly is just 20minutes on the train from Gard du Nord and walking distance from the train station. Tickets cost €14, which gives you entry to the grounds and the chateau.
