My little French secret?
Versailles isn’t worth it.
When all the tourists pour into the golden castle of our history text books, they leave ample space in Chantilly for me, and now you.
Lured by the promise of a fairytale-esque moat and sparse tourists, my mom and I visited Chantilly with high hopes. Located just 45 minutes away from Paris, the quaint yet elegant town of Chantilly offers a delectable sampling for everyone: spacious parks, a romantic château with a politically fascinating history, delicious cream, and extremely pampered horses.
Oh yes. Horses. But we’ll get to that.
