> The Park of the Chateau of Acquigny
Here the hydraulic system dates back to the time of the medieval fortress built in around 1050. Over the centuries, a classic water grid surrounding a vegetable garden − including a large water ‘mirror’, as well as constructions dating from the very end of the 18th century in a romantic style − form the setting for a visit to the park.
> The Park of the Château of Beaumesnil
Instead of springs or streams, this water garden is fed by drainage channels that collect rainwater throughout the wooded section of the park. Three fountains bring the calm waters of the moat to life with their jets. A two-acre ‘mirror’ lake, with elegant outlines, lies behind the chateau. The views and proportions give the chateau an almost magical dimension.
> The Park of the Château of Bizy
In this classic park, water features evoke the former baroque splendour of the 18th century. Fed by a system of subterranean channels and ducts, ponds and fountains bring the formal plantings of the park to life.
> The Park of the Château du Champ de Bataille
The result of an ingenious system of watercourses and channels, water provides a structure to the perspectives and open spaces at Champ de Bataille. Fountains, pools and a canal lend character to the built elements and plantings of the gardens – sometimes with force, and sometimes accentuating the feeling of serenity.
