Senlis as a base for one day in Paris?

Jump to last reply

We are traveling from Bruges to Alsace with a car over several days and based on the excellent reportage of Kerouac and French Mystique I've found Pierrefonds and Chantilly to be very attractive way points. While Paris wasn't originally in our plans, if we are seeing Chantilly it would be daft not to pop down to Paris for a day to show our teen aged boys a couple of highlights.

Would Senlis be a good base for 2 nights as a place to sleep between our 1 long day in Paris? It seems we could drive to the Chantilly train station to catch the train? The next morning we could get an early start to the Chateau at Chantilly before heading to Pierrefonds and overnighting in Reims. (Two very tiring days but then we could sleep-in the next day in Reims).

It would be better of course to see Pierrefonds on the way from Bruges and split the two chateaux between days, but this may not be possible.

Is there anyplace we might consider besides Senlis for our brief stay?
