Each year, the Chantilly Racecourse hosts a strongly contested Group 1 flat horse race that honours the best three-year-old thoroughbred filly. But at the Prix de Diane, also known as the French Oaks, the show also takes place in the stands. During your stay at the Roch Hotel & Spa, why not discover this elegant and refined sporting event as well as all the entertainment and activities that accompany it?
The Prix de Diane programme
The doors of Chantilly Racecourse (Hippodrome de Chantilly) will open from 11:00 on Sunday, June 16th and you won’t want to be late. This is because, on the periphery of the main racing events, there’s a host of activities to be enjoyed, including DIY workshops, sack races, ball pits and much more. At noon, the lawns become the site of a giant picnic where racegoers compete in wearing the most extravagant and original hats and outfits. The show is as much in the stands as it is on the race course!
Refined yet playful
You will have to put on your finery for the famous Prix de Diane. Upon arrival, you can purchase a Fauchon hat box. Why? Because the luxury French gourmet food and delicatessen company has concocted a dream picnic from luxurious food items especially for the occasion and packed it all in a hat box! Young people can enjoy the hectic atmosphere of a specially reserved area with DJ sets, while those who want to escape the crowd can reserve a table in the panoramic restaurant or the Table de Diane. So many ways to experience the Prix de Diane!
Among the elegant and offbeat events in Paris and its close surroundings, the Prix de Diane is one of the favourites of our Roch Hotel & Spa team. Take part in this incredible madness!
