Among the rooms that I remember are the Monkey room which has some beautiful gold and white panels on the wall with chinoiserie and moneys in the design. There is a set of chairs in this room that belonged to Marie Antoinette and were in her bathroom at Versailles. The last room on the tour has been made into almost a shrine to the sons of the Duc D'aumale who died as young men. The furniture throughout is striking.
The Library which can be visited without the tour is a must see. It has some of the finest illuminated manuscripts in the world. One, the "Tres Riches Heures du Duc du Berry" is a real treasure.
The chapel has the heart of the Grande Conde.
Throughout the Chateau you will see the letters H & O entwined, this stands for Henri Orleans, the Duc D'aumale. There is a very nice gift shop and a restaurant at the Chateau. Also the stables have been turned into the Grand Museum of the Horse, and these are not like any stables you have ever seen.
