After visiting the chateau, we visited the gardens, access to the gardens is included with admission to the chateau, not free like Versailles or Fontainebleau. Or you can purchase admission just to the park and gardens, currently 6€. The formal gardens were designed by André Le Nôtre who also designed the grounds at Versailles. The grand canal here is actually a tributary of the Oise River, this garden has the most water of any garden designed by Le Nôtre. There is also an English garden, if you walk into the gardens you can get a very nice view of the chateau.

The hamlet is five rather dull tudor style buildings and while it may have inspired the hamlet that Marie Antoinette created at Versailles, which is charming and a delight to walk around, it is not it's equal .
