  • Beautifully wooded park that reveals little by little its charms over the promenade. It is full of fountains and beautiful pools in their green boxes. The mossy undergrowth offers an exquisite freshness. The Japanese garden is a splendor that invite, just like the rest of the place, at rest and quiet. Cannot access but it is surrounded by many benches that allow to contemplate it from different points of view. It is not flowery, but the colors of the trees offer pleasant contrasts. A very detailed plan with explanatory notes is given at the beginning of the visit but there is nothing to prevent the walkers to wander at will and enjoy the atmosphere of the place aimlessly. The tea room is charming and quaint, like the neighbouring village. The Park is open on weekends and holidays from 14: 00 to 18: 00, until November 1st (I recommend to check the official site of the place to be sure that it is open) and the castle is currently closed to visitors. We look forward to returning this fall, because the landscape must be especially grandiose this time of the year.

  • beautiful japanese garden and charming tea house and the building is built by the same architect as the chateau of fontainebleau
  • Good example of French park / landscape architecture.
  • Marvelous gardens and a beautiful château!
  • Wonderful memories.
  • The visit to the castle is good to soak up the history of the site and know the family who helps maintain a little better and maintenance this sumptuous place. Visit the gardens takes some time so the property is large. But what peace! Guests have even made available a tearoom for tourists like us, in a building that is also nice and decorate with taste, facing the beautiful Japanese garden. We are appreciative of the work on the part of employees. Very happy to spent a nice afternoon under a summer sun.
