Gardens designed by Le Nôtre
Here, more than anywhere else, is where you will appreciate the beauty of a classic French-style garden. Amid the majestic outline of large avenues flanked by stunning white marble statues are charming groves, amazing green spaces and oases of peace just waiting to be discovered. These pleasant and often shaded locations, complete with fountains in a variety of amazing shapes, are a delight for walkers.
As part of Musical Gardens, Baroque music will guide you through groves that are usually closed on selected Tuesdays between 29 March 29 and October 31, 2017. The fountains are turned on every Tuesday from 23 May to 27 June, and Saturday and Sunday from April 1 to October 29, 2017 during Musical Fountain Shows. And if you want to see a truly grand event, don't miss the Night Fountains Show every Saturday night from June 17 to September 16!
