What is Chantilly Castle?
Chantilly Castle is a Renaissance-style old castle. It is now converted into a museum and loved by local people. It is also a destination for a lot of tourists from all over the world
The castle is located at 47km north of Paris which is about a 50 minute-drive. It is structurally complicated yet a well-proportioned and well-balanced architecture.
- It is said that the Chantilly Castle may be the prototype of garden of Palace of Versailles because Mr. Lenotre, who designed the garden of Chantilly Castle, was also involved in building the garden of Versailles right afterward.
- Mr. François Vatel was appointed as the chef by the castle owner at the time of the King’s visit to Chantilly Castle. He was referred to as a perfect model of French chef.
Whipped cream made of fresh cream was his original recipe and later this was called Crème Chantilly.
- Chantilly Castle is located adjacent to the third and fourth corners of Chantilly Racecourse, where Prix du Jockey Club, a French version of Derby, and Prix de Diane, equivalent to Oaks, are held.
It is known as the most beautiful racecourse in the world.
