Domaine of Villarceaux, Chaussy

Domaine of Villarceaux is a spectacular French château with a water garden and a park. It has been classified as an historic monument of France and is used for concerts and cultural events. Here you will be able to witness a rare 18th century ornamental feature called farthingale (French: vertugadin) that is modeled after the hoop skirts of the same century. The farthingale is surrounded by statutes imported from Italy. The gardens were built to protect France from the British. Interestingly, you will get a glimpse of the medieval fortifications in the park. You can enjoy a completely free entry to the site on certain days as specified on the website.

  • Beautiful sunny fall day, the French Vexin nature park shines under the rays of Phoebus and presents us with one of his most beautiful jewels, the field of Villarceaux, shimmering reflections color. Easy parking and free entrance (very rare), are supported by a passionate guide to the site which makes us visit both green exteriors and stunning interiors. Married come make their photos/memories, a great choice! Finish the walk to the terrace of the Café, (Nice, documentation on the site and those of the surrounding area) of installed under a big umbrella, a haven of two peace not you, do not miss it.

  • I join the chorus of praise on the great renovation of the Castle and its Park. The area is very nice and the renovation is very well done. If the 2 castles are not spectacular compared to the exceptional Royal estates that encircle Paris, the variety of perspectives and the diversity of the points of interest make this destination a very privileged walk goal - everything is free and little frequented in view of the vastness of the field. After this visit, we're one cable of the castle of the Roche Guyon and its castle, and then ends at the exceptional Vétheuil glacier where the smile and the sense of hospitality are admirably with remarkable ice!...

  • Great area open to the public and where we walk freely. A few small hidden treasures like the sculpture to climate refugees, or the tiny medieval garden.

  • Very beautiful area, as the Castle Park. Everything is free, the entrance and the visit which is rare enough to point that out. The guides are friendly and make us share their interest in this heritage. I go there with pleasure when the Sun come up.
