Rambouillet's Castle Grounds

Recommended
Around the Château de Rambouillet lie formal gardens; the flowerbed culminates in Rondeau ornamental pond, with its superb alley of bald cypress trees. In the water garden developed by the Duke of Pentièvre, the view of the grand canal is extended by the Tapis Vert. The canals, whose layout forms a trapezium shape, surround the islands: Île des Festins and Île des Roches).
