French elegance in Chantilly


Like a fairytale castle, Chantilly is surrounded by a vast garden, similar to those of Versailles and Vaux-le-Vicomte but smaller in size. We visited Chantilly back in 2009 and kept an excellent souvenir of the estate. Despite its royal appearance, Chantilly never belonged to the kings of France, but rather to the illustrious noble families that were often related to the monarch. Chantilly is the quintessence of French elegance, revealed by some of our black and white pictures…

Originally taken in colour, we decided to convert in black and white some of our photos taken in Chantilly in order to give them a specific elegant French touch…

You will find all these photos in a bigger size and better quality on our flickr photo stream here.
