The Grounds of Champs-sur-Marne Castle
This magnificent park, designed by a nephew of Le Nôtre, was brought back to life in the early 20C by Duchêne, who respected its original perspectives and skilfully recreated its ponds, fountains and copses. It is now considered one of the masterpieces of formal French gardens. A marked path (2hr - 5.5km) enables visitors to explore the main points of interest within the park and to admire its perspectives.
