Hi All,

On the north facade of the Château Vieux, the regular gardens were created under the direction of André Le Nôtre, between Protected content 1673. This one, much appreciated by Louis XIV, will redesign the green spaces of the two castles, the Château Vieux of François I and the Château-Neuf of Henri IV; by creating three separate gardens, namely a large parterre, a slanted parterre and the Dauphine garden.
Moreover, Le Nôtre imposes here his genius for perspective. Its large terrace built between Protected content 1674, 2 km long, is a true masterpiece of perspective. It offers an exceptional panoramic view over the entire Seine valley, extending to the edge of the forest.

We look forward to see you there
