Famous for its architecture and its history, Chantilly can also boast of being the favorite creation of Le Nôtre, the most famous gardener in the history of France to whom he notably owed the development of the park of the Palace of Versailles as well than that of Vaux-le-Vicomte. What characteristics have enabled these gardens to attract the interest of their creator? We can cite the vastness of the 115 hectare park at the heart of which the Château de Chantilly is part, as well as the 25 hectares of bodies of water which provided Le Nôtre with the material to create its mirrors and water games. . Upstream of these developments, Le Nôtre will have channeled the river "La Nonette" to create its "Grand Canal" and drawn the main prospects for the area. Before starting the visit of this Mecca of French gardens, remember that the area is also renowned for the whipped cream which would have been invented, for its cultural program made of fireworks and outdoor operas as well as for its equestrian school and its hippodrome.

It is the temple of Venus, an architectural "madness" erected at the beginning of the 19th century in the heart of the English Garden. This atypical space is composed of a temple which hosts in its center a statue representing the goddess of Love and Beauty. The swans that inhabit this part of the park love to swim around the temple.
