Designed in the XNUMXth century but remained unfinished, the French-style park leads to the main courtyard of the castle with a star-shaped layout and an octagonal central basin. To the north, a plantation of bicentennial lime and chestnut trees is listed as a Historic Monument.

The most original achievement was to have restored the water in the moat thus making the house and its garden island. The layout of the regular gardens in front of the Castle is still found today in the current lawn of the south terrace. All around, the liquid mass of the moat where the Castle is reflected and further on the gracious grove of trees, the hills, the meadows and the crops that surround the park.

Free information : Parking for 2 coaches. 3 sanitary facilities on site, one of which is accessible to people with reduced mobility. Unattended access to the moat.
