Park

Recommended
Laid out by Le Nôtre for the Great Condé, it dazzled Louis XIV. The Sun King, prone to envy as he was, wished to have the same water feature for himself at Versailles! Even if very little remains of Le Nôtre's hand, as you stroll through, you will see the superb landscaped garden (1820) dotted with "monuments", the Chapelle St Jean, a chapel built by Anne de Montmorency in 1538, a fan-shaped waterfall, the Hamlet (1774), which foreshadowed that at Trianon, the Grand Canal and the Manche.
