How to get into it, and around in Chantilly !!

Indeed one of favorite castles in France, and friends of the castle as well since 2010. We love it, and been coming here since 1990 and then almost every year! This is Chantilly , a lot more than the castle/cream lol ! I have written before on it in my blog, however ,need to tell you how to get into it and around in Chantilly city !!

Hope you enjoy the post, and thanks for reading  me over the years !!! Chantilly is in the département 60 of the Oise, in the region of Hauts-de-France at the center of the forest of Chantilly, in the valley of the Nonette.Chantilly is located about 38 km north of Paris.

Very good roads in and out on the crossroads of France to the north of Europe. The old N16 or old royal route from Pierrefitte-sur-Seine to Dunkerque passing by Amiens, cuts the city south to north ; now it is the D1116. The D924A allows you to joint the old N17 or route de Flandres at La Chapelle-en-Serval, and the D924 connects you to the town of Senlis. From here you can join the autoroute A1 south to Paris.
