Château and Estate of Ambleville, Ambleville

1.9
The Château d'Ambleville is a French Renaissance style château located within the regional park of Vexin, in the Val d'Oise Department of France. The chateau is classified as a monument historique of France.The gardens are classified among the Notable Gardens of France by the Ministry of Culture of France.HistoryThe château was built in the 16th century for the seigneurs of Ambleville and Villarceaux by architect Jean Grappin, on the foundations of a medieval castle on the banks of the Aubette. In the 17th century, the house was acquired by the Duke of Villeroy, Nicolas V, the Ambassador of France to Medicis. He created a garden in the Florentine style. The house was purchased in 1893 by Charles Sedelmeyer (1837–1925), who restored the chateau and added a theater and Venetian chimneys and balconies. In 1928 the new owner, the Marquise de Villefranche, remade the gardens after those of the recently restored gardens of the Villa Gamberaia in Florence. Today they offer one of the best examples of an Italian Renaissance garden in France.

  • Spring visit to enjoy the flower beds of beautiful daffodils in this season. The pretty romantic gardens could be renovated/restored. Same comment for the Interior, the owners lack the likely means to better highlight their heritage where too high price of 9 E (such as the splendid CAZENEUVE in GIRONDE Castle!), too bad!

  • Visits to the Castle being guided and fixed time we settle tiered gardens. The visit although not being the most beautiful season that is in April, we found it relaxing and very enjoyable. We will return to the Castle.

  • A castle like this must take a lot of resources for maintenance and restoration. Unfortunately, the current owners in need... A few visible parts lack a bit of clarity, the rest of the Castle (at least 3/4) is not visible, probably ruined. The garden is like the House, it might be beautiful but a little sad face for lack of resources. Entry is a bit expensive €9 / person, I hope that entries money is reinvested in the Castle pou him restore, one day, his pedigree.

  • I visited these gardens on Thursday, July 13 in the afternoon. There was really nobody and I could really enjoy unforgettable views and garden safely. Admission is charged: 6 euros per person. The garden is really great for a nice walk. Some parts are very few maintained, but the nicest places of the gardens are perfect. The visit to the castle is only by guided tour. Learn more on these visits if schedules you want to visit the gardens with the Castle.

  • We visited the gardens of the castle of Ambleville early August and we were delighted with this discovery. The walk among the yews, boxwood, and the many species of flowers was most enjoyable. We also had the opportunity to discuss with the head gardener who has responded with great kindness to all of our questions and who gave us tips on botanical... Thanks to him, it was a very rewarding meeting!

  • Beautiful gardens. Castle private tour is interesting and made by the owner that adds it a nice touch of humor. The parts they can visit are furnished in period furniture often in the State of origin which makes their charm.

  • The castle gardens are very beautiful, I highly recommend a visit them. On the other hand, we waited 4 hours the visit of the castle which was very annoying and approximate. The visit to the castle is to be avoided.
