Domaine of Villarceaux is a spectacular French ch√Ęteau with a water garden and a park. It has been classified as an historic monument of France and is used for concerts and cultural events. Here you will be able to witness a rare 18th century ornamental feature called farthingale (French: vertugadin) that is modeled after the hoop skirts of the same century. The farthingale is surrounded by statutes imported from Italy. The gardens were built to protect France from the British.
