Château de Chantilly
- One of France’s most beautiful sites, with an amazing park. A city of art and history now become the “capital of the horse”.
- The Montmorency and Condé families, the Duc d'Aumale – princely patrons and proprietors.
- Paintings, porcelains, the library (with the Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry manuscript dating from the 15th century), the Singerie (“monkey room”) and its 18th-century vignettes....
- Vatel, maître d’hôtel to Nicolas Fouquet and then to the Grand Condé in the 17th century, between myth and reality: the invention of crème chantilly (whipped cream).
