It was a nice garden to visit but unfortunately they no longer allow you to see inside the Château unless you are accompanied by a member of the French senate. There are several small cafes and vendors scattered throughout the park.

ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
