DESCRIPTION
Visiting the interior of the château is by guided tour only. Approximate duration: 1h.
Average time spent on site: 1h45

The visitor will discover a Renaissance staircase, stone vaults, as well as rooms furnished with paintings, tapestries and art objects, each with a monumental fireplace. The historic monument has been one of the most important restoration projects in France since 2008.

The garden is the result of extensive academic research and a campaign of archaeological excavations. The restoration offers a coherent reconstruction of a landscape realized between 1542 and 1561. Enclosed garden consits of nine parterres themed on the education of a wealthy prince and the enigma of life. The garden includes fountains, vases, polyandrion, chamber gardens with partitions of charmilles, orchard, 'Hortus Conclusus', labyrinth, arbours, terraces and a formal pool. The combined symbolic, literary and intellectual organization recalls the ambitions of the Renaissance. It has recently been classified as a 'Jardin remarquable'.
