This folly (pleasure house) was extended and beautifield between 1696 and 1730 by Etienne de Flaugergues, councillon to the revenue court of Montpellier. A unique three-storey staircaise with hanging key-stone vaulting of a rare elegance takes up a third of the building. Formal gardens lead to landscape gardens embellished by an orangery.

Good facilities- toilets, cafe, shop, wine tasting. We were only able to do a garden tour. Small amount of manicured gardens, mostly natural wooded area & informal planting. Impressive bamboos & nice orangery.
