Domaine of Villarceaux is a spectacular French château with a water garden and a park. It has been classified as an historic monument of France and is used for concerts and cultural events. Here you will be able to witness a rare 18th century ornamental feature called farthingale (French: vertugadin) that is modeled after the hoop skirts of the same century. The farthingale is surrounded by statutes imported from Italy. The gardens were built to protect France from the British. Interestingly, you will get a glimpse of the medieval fortifications in the park. You can enjoy a completely free entry to the site on certain days as specified on the website.

Beautiful photos in autumn. We had already come there 8 years ago but our members asked us to repeat this visit! Worth a visit.
C'est toujours un grand plaisir que de se promener dans ce domaine, le parc est exceptionnel, bien entretenu c'est un plaisir que d'y faire le tour du lac. La battisse est immense et belle. more »It is always a great pleasure to walk in this area, the park is exceptional, well maintained it is a pleasure to go around the lake. The battisse is immense and beautiful.
The place is not that clean, there's a lot of poop everywhere, the pond is all green and smells unpleasant on some areas. however, it's a place for relaxing so bring a picnic cloth as u like but I won't stay for long.
