Day 4. Paris - Chantilly

Pick up your car and drive to your chateau hotel in Chantilly. A commune in the valley of the Nonette in the northern region of France, it is surrounded by Chantilly Forest which has a very dense network of forest roads that are wonderful for walking. 

You could also visit many of the beautiful historic and architectural sites around the city. With the Foret de Chantilly, a once-royal hunting estate with gorgeous walking and riding trails and the Chateau de Chantilly, a storybook castle open for all to explore, Chantilly projects an almost wistful atmosphere.

Day 5. Chantilly

With so many riding trails, you might want to take a look at the historic Grandes Ecurises, or the Grand Stables which was built between 1719 and 1740 to house 240 horses and over 400 hounds. These stables now house the Musee Viviant du Cheval and showcases riding equipment and artwork.

Or you could take a leisurely stroll through the wondrous gardens of the Chateau de Chantilly. With extensive and exquisite grounds, a stunning castle, and a restaurant in the kitchens that serves local cuisine the old-fashioned way, Chateau de Chantilly has entertainment that could last all day.
