Close to Charles de Gaulle airport, the Chantilly Polo Club is located in a large clearing on the grounds of the village of Apremont.
The club has all the facilities for world level competition, and throughout the seasons, it shares the same passion for horses gathered by the founders of the club, their children and grandchildren. Moreover the quality of the fields have already allowed the club to host one World Championship and two European Championships.
Chantilly is undoubtedly famous for the famous Château de Chantilly, but it is also considered the “Equestrian Capital” in France. Often referred to as a paradise for horse-lovers, it dedicates its energies to equestrian competitions.
