Host your reception in a Princely residence

The Château de Chantilly houses the exceptional collections of the Duke of Aumale. It is made up of the art galleries, the lavishly furnished suites and the reading room, all of which can become the perfect setting for your events and receptions.

The Stag Gallery

Created at the end of the 19th century, this Renaissance-style room, with its coffered ceiling, was used as a reception and dining room. The Duke of Aumale received the artistic and intellectual elite of the period in this room every Sunday. Hunting, the favourite pastime of princes, is omnipresent in the decor. 8 tapestries adorn the walls: they were woven in the 17th century in the Royal Gobelins Manufactory, after a famous 16th century hanging: The Hunts of Maximilian. Welcome your guests like princes in this exceptional venue!

The Tribune

Its name and its architecture are reminiscent of the Tribuna in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. The Duke of Aumale designed this room to present a panorama of art history: two walls are devoted to the Renaissance (Fra Angelico, Botticelli), one wall is devoted to the French and Dutch schools of the 17th and 18th centuries (Poussin, Van Dyck, Watteau) and two other walls exhibit the works of 19th century France, with the neoclassical movement (Ingres) on one side and romanticism (Delacroix) on the other. This original octogonal room is perfect for intimate receptions.

The Large Suites

The large suites provide a wonderful example of the ceremonial decors in fashion in the 18th century and a broad variety of decorative arts, furniture and Old Master paintings. Discover these during a private visit accompanied by a tour guide.

You can also organise dinner in the Gallery of Battles, the largest room of the large suites, which the princes of Condé used as a reception room.
