    Let's walk in the park

    The 5 hectares of the park are an incentive for daydreaming and relaxation; small bridges, rocks, green expanses punctuate the landscape; The murmurs of the water, the songs of birds, the rustling of the leaves, the thumping of carp in the water punctuate the walk.

    The park is a haven for wildlife; you can observe ducks, herons, squirrels and even a kingfisher if you are lucky on the day of your visit!

    an English style poetic park

    Rare species in our country magnify the castle - their names are an invitation to travel: Virginia tulip tree, Lebanese cedar, redwood, American liquidambar, Louisiana cypress - just like the endemic species, the lime trees, the walnuts, the beeches, chestnut trees, hornbeams.

     

    All several hundred years old, they bear witness to the historical strength of the castle.

    the table of the 3 Lords, the ice house, the postern and the ruins of the old gallery of the castle.
