About Chateau de Chantilly

Located 40 kilometres north of Paris, in the Picardy region of France, this small town looks like it belongs to a fairytale. The Jewel in the crown of Domaine de Chantilly is the stunning 16th century Chateau, built for Anne de Montmorecy, and is undoubtedly one of the most astonishing French chateau wedding venues near Paris. An outdoor wedding ceremony in the stunning Island of Love is the perfect choice with its 100m long aisle for the entrance of dreams. Designed by renowned architect Victor Dubois, the English Garden or the Chateau Terrace is the perfect location for a large-scale marquee wedding.
