Only 40 minutes from Paris, the equestrian capital, in France, is organizing its first costume ball in the 16th century château, built by prince Louis II de Condé-Bourbon, also known as Le Grand Condé. This unique and very special evening will highlight French style art of living. All those who are passionate about costumes and the History of France will be invited to relive a legendary festivity given in 1782.

Facing the Grandes Ecuries stables, whose spectacles of thoroughbreds are always stunning, guests will be transported back to the atmosphere of yesteryear. They can move about in staterooms, admire the painting galleries filled with treasures, taste gourmet pleasures, partake in dance demonstrations, watch comedies and enjoy concerts.
