Overview
More
On the Nonette River, in the heart of Chantilly, the Pavillon de Manse was built at the end of the 17th century by the Prince of Condé and transformed during the 19th century by the duke of Aumale. Designed by J.H Mansart and listed as an historic monument, the old mill houses the Prince of Condé's Machine des Grandes Eaux (1679) and the Duke of Aumale's hydraulic machinery room.
