Paris in springtime? Can't be beat. But for something completely different, try the fantastic French town of Chantilly, which is just 35 minutes from the City of Light. Chantilly, the horse-racing Capital of France, trains over 3,000 thoroughbreds in its gorgeous forests and countryside. Fans of the French comic Asterix and Obelisk will want to take a quick trip to Parc Asterix, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Head one town over to Beauvais and tour some of the spectacular tapestry factories and galleries. Then finish your trip off with a delightful shot of Chantilly cream, a sweetened whipped cream frequently served with ice cream.
So where to stay? Book now at the Tiara Chateau Hotel Mont Royal
, the stunning castle turned luxury property nestled in the heart of the Chantilly Forest. You'll enjoy a newly renovated Superior room starting at 225 Euros, along with an indoor pool, fitness center, tennis court, and the renowned L'Opera restaurant. You can also relax in the Stradivarius Bar, which is located in the castle's original smokehouse. Bon Voyage!
