Château de Chantilly - Sept 25

On our next-to-last full day we took one more trip out of Paris - this time to the Château de Chantilly. There was the Petit Château built around 1560 and the Grand Château which was rebuilt in the 1870's after having been destroyed in the Revolution. The building is on the edge of a reflecting pool that is part of the magnificent grounds surrounding it. There were sections containing an English Garden, a French Garden, and an Anglo-Chinese garden. A small temple of Venus, too.

There is also a huge stable that is also a museum - a horse museum; a large racetrack is there as well.
