Courances Castle Gardens : Garden of Mirrors, sources and infinite reflections.
Less than 50 km from Paris, discover one of France's most beautiful gardens and its Louis XIII castle, a historic monument.
This disregarded park is surprisingly beautiful in many ways : Classical and romantic, historic and contemporary. Its atmosphere is at the same time intimate and grandiose.
In the 75 ha landscape, created in the 16th century, running water, plants and stone are everywhere and make this a unique place. Playing with nature and water courses, perspectives and scales, monochromes of greens and colours, Courances Park reveals itself in freedom and rigour. Created in : XVIème siècle
