Park and Gardens of the Château d'Ainay Le Vieil : The landscape park surrounds the medieval castle, and the water games from the early 17th century guide us in promenade that is a real initiation into garden art: the Garden of the Poets with its flower-lined arcade avenue and its green rooms, the Rose Garden with its ancient varieties, and its climbing roses that invade the trees and the two 17th century summer houses, the Island Square with its structure of palissade-trimmed hornbeams, the Charterhouses that have each their own theme garden: the mixed-border, the sculpted orchard, the meditation garden, the cloister with its simples and the embroidered flower beds.
