Domaine of Villarceaux is a spectacular French château 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. Interestingly, you will get a glimpse of the medieval fortifications in the park. You can enjoy a completely free entry to the site on certain days as specified on the website.
