In this vast domain of 60 hectares, the remains of a real palace of the eighteenth century are surrounded by an immense park. Majestic rows of lime trees highlight the ruins of the castle. From the Duke of Saint-Simon to King Louis-Philippe, passing by the rich Marquis de Laborde, the Domaine de La Ferté-Vidame, the largest enclosed park in Europe after Chambord, finds his drawings of French Park. A plunge into history in the shadow of the majestic ruin of what was a 167 room palace and the Petit Château transformed by the king of France in the early nineteenth century.

Access: Parking in front of the gates (Place du Général de Fontanges).
