Top: the garden schematic from my guidebook, "Dorling Kindersley Travel Guides - France".
The gardens are immense, and while some people walk, others fork over E30 for the privilege of driving a modified golf cart through the grounds. There is a programmed route, and woe be unto you if you divert from it! I'll tell that story later. Check the post below.
Second and third: partial views of the chateau
Fourth: just one of the many fountains and reflecting pools on the grounds, each one a work of art. I can't find any info in the guidebooks about the size of the estate, but I seem to remember hearing a guide say that it is about 88 acres. I should have googled it.
