The Potager des Princes is one of the last vestiges of the Parc des Princes de Condé… Tell us its story!Le Potager des Princes is located on the site of the old pheasantry dating from the 17th century, belonging to the Princes of Condé who went there by boat to come and admire their pheasants. The entrance to the park was entirely created by the architect Le Nôtre, who had imagined a beautiful set of terraces and pools. The site will undergo several transformations over the centuries, becoming in turn a Roman pavilion, a rustic hamlet (which will inspire Marie-Antoinette for Versailles), then a veterinary clinic. I finally bought the park in 2000, to rehabilitate it and be able to share this heritage treasure with the public.

How is the Parc du Potager des Princes structured today?In addition to the gardens and the vegetable patch, there is a dwarf farmyard that I entirely imagined, a reception room, a clearing for games and a theater on the water. The city of Chantilly had not had a theater for a long time, and it was important to me to revive this traditional leisure of the 17th century. Along the walk, we discover an exotic garden and its banana trees, a Japanese garden, a labyrinth of bamboos, a rose garden or a garden of medicinal plants. A flowery vegetable garden surrounded by apple and pear trees rubs shoulders with orchards and fig trees, as in the days of the Grand Condé. At the edge of the pond also stands a Greco-Roman temple which recalls the gallant past of the pheasantry. Complemented by a small Guignol theater which will see the light of day very soon, the Potager des Princes is a human-sized park which offers a thousand and one surprises for young and old alike ... A true paradise dedicated to lovers of art and nature !
