A garden shielded from the noise and nicely decorated with climbing roses, what gives to it a very romantic character in season, when it is abundantly decorated with flowers. In front of the garden is the Hotel du Grand Veneur Huntsman, a town house built in the 17th century. A luxurious scenery to from the lawns , open to the public!
