At the beginning of the 17th century, part of the wooded grounds of the chateau were used to create a recreational area where a house known as "Sylvie's house" (in reference to Sylvia, nymph of the forest) was built by Théophile de Viau, in memory of the Duchess of Montmorency, wife of Henri II of Montmorency.
The censored libertine poet was a protégé of the Montmorencys, who were fond of the company of illustrious intellectuals. He lived in this building with the complicity of the duchess, who visited him there regularly.
On the edge of a pond fed by a bubbling spring, Sylvie's house is an idyllic shaded place, which was also appreciated by Henri IV during his stays in Chantilly. Equipped with a rotunda by the Duke of Aumale in the 19th century, this charming house with its French-style garden is the ideal venue for your intimate prestigious events.
