Castle park

Set off to discover the château's park, a true English-style park. The flora and fauna will surprise you. Please note that dogs are not allowed in the park (neither on a lead nor in a bag) due to the presence of the owner's animals: a cat, a dog, peacocks, etc.

Thank you for your understanding.

Admission to the park includes access to the tea room/shop and the outbuildings (chapel, guard room, labyrinth, medicinal garden, wooden games, peacock aviary). A 15-minute film on the history of the château is also available in French and English, and runs on a loop in both languages in the guard room. On average, a visit to the park takes around 45 minutes.
