After a 5-minute walk from bus stop”Évariste Gallois” (line 9), I reach my goal in the heart of the city, the castle, and I take a ticket for a visit of the gardens followed by a tasting (“Flânerie aux gardens”). By this beautiful sun, I feel that I will have a very pleasant time!
I first discover the terrace with statues and with its simple appearance. I take the time to observe the beautiful residence: construction in freestone, very neat, it offers a monumental picture.
I have an impression of nobility accentuated by the presence of rich sculptures and wrought iron, I have no trouble to imagine the magnificence of the building during the Grand Siècle.
