Main Courtyard or French Garden

Welcome to the main courtyard of Château des Ormes. The current proportions of this courtyard date back to the mid-19th century. The Pussort wing on your right and the d’Argenson wing on your left were long isolated by lateral courtyards (established in the 18th century) equipped with gates. These courtyards disappeared during the conversion into an English-style park by the landscaper André Leroy (1801-1875).

The current flower beds were created in the 2000s, replacing those from the post-war period. French gardens are known for their rigorous symmetry and geometric layout. French gardens often feature manicured lawns and straight pathways intersecting at right angles. They are carefully planned to reflect order and geometry.
