    The name "Courances" refers to the many sources of water in the place. The promenade in the 75-hectare Castle Park was very nice by the time hot and heavy on Saturday, August 26, 2017, as vegetation, very present and bushy, broadcasts its moisture. Powered by 14 natural sources, many water bodies have been built over the centuries in the Park. Landscaping of the Park reproduces five centuries of mode in gardens, from the sixteenth to the twentieth century; french, English, and Japanese Gardens. You can walk by removing your shoes in the Park, because the latter is fully covered with grass. My wife and I we are lying on the grass in the shade of a large tree, to observe its foliage and clouds in the sky. Relaxation guaranteed. Reasonable entry price: 7.50 euros. Dogs on a leash are allowed, which is far from being the case in all parks of castles near Paris, but picnics are prohibited. There is no trash in the Park, and toilets are at the entrance of the Park. Allow two to three hours to do it quietly around the Park.

    Lovely French garden, many water-powered sources, next to the Castle a charming Japanese garden. The castle is usually open to the public except during the month of August.
