Description of the visit
The garden was created around 1860 in the Romantic period, and is characterized by it’s luxuriance and it’s botanic diversity. The entrance courtyard is bordered by sculpted hedges. You enter through the back porch of the guards lodging and the English park where sequoias, Irish yews and magnificent cedar trees lead to the château bridge.
Narrow roads lead the visitor to the first 12th century tower. On the ground floor you can see a room with a vaulted ceiling, named Cinq-Mars. Follow the spiral staircase up to the vaulted room on the first floor and then to a terrace where you will discover a view onto the valley. The visit continues at the foot of the second tower and down into the deep, dry and large moat neatly realized in the 16th century. Stroll around and head back on the path overlooking the moat. When you arrive in front of the Juiverie you have a view onto the village’s rooftops. The visit ends through the romantic park.
