The Orangery is home to the first collection of miniature house furnishings in the world: models, maquettes, mini-masterpieces, ivories, silverware all minuscule. This collection of small scale objects includes over 800 pieces of furniture, and thousands of other objects. The Chateau retains its original furnishings and decor. Visit an interior where family paintings, games tables, dog beds and automata follow cheek by jowl. The family atmosphere, the furnishings and the curios, take you back to a bygone age. The Chateau kitchens boast over 500 copper pots as well as revealing a number of Chef Maurice’s best kept secrets. In the gardens, a pyramid icehouse, and an amazing water garden full of surprises, where water is everywhere: Chinese bridge, Muses’ grove, crystal tree, turtle waterfall and the grotto of 200,000 shells.
