Itinerary

Get to know your fellow travellers over a drink and dinner this evening. During your stay your Tour Manager will arrange a game of boules and a glass of beer or wine one evening in the grounds of your hotel.​

​Château de Chantilly is one of France's finest 18th century buildings. Located in the heart of a large forest on the outskirts of Paris, it comprises two attached buildings, the Petit Château and the Grand Château, which was destroyed in the French Revolution and rebuilt in the 1870s.

One of the owners of the château was in exile in London for more than 20 years, and during that time, he built up an art collection which he brought here on his return. In the gallery, the Musée Condé, discover one of the best art collections in France with a particularly fine selection of French paintings, as well as an impressive library.

Step inside for a tour and enjoy a stroll around the magnificent gardens on today's optional three-quarterday excursion.
With its exceptional architecture and delicious gastronomic delights, Paris is a seductive city. Sit back and enjoy the sights as they are wonderfully illuminated on an optional coach tour of the French capital this evening, with dinner included.​

​It is said that the history of France is written in her gardens, and this is reflected in the many different horticultural styles found across the country.
Particularly delightful are the gardens of the famous French Impressionist Claude Monet in Giverny. He planted and painted here from 1883 until his death in 1926, gaining inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounded him.
Explore the artist's flower garden, Clos Normand, as well as the Japanese-style water garden. These two areas are a beautiful contrast to one another, yet are equally wonderful to explore.
The most famous feature is the lily pond, from which Monet gained so much inspiration, and his series of water lily paintings is revered throughout the world.
As you stroll through the enchanting gardens don't miss the exquisite Japanese bridge which is covered with wisteria - it too is depicted in many of Monet's greatest works of art.
In the evening we will gather as a group to enjoy a farewell drink.​
