General organization and design of the park created by the famous landscape Achille Duchène at the request of Mr. and Mrs. Drouilly date from the beginning of the 20th century. Achille Duchène opposed to the British landscape art, very popular in France since the 19th century, by imposing a return to the tradition of the French gardens. Designated landscape of high society, he drew over 6,000 gardens around the world.

The French garden is an extension of the dwelling, it domesticate and order the nature according to the principles of geometry, optics and perspective. The garden is drawn as an edifice ; visitors pass though a succession of rooms following a pre-established journey.

 

The gardens have been awarded the Remarkable gardens label, and received the Grand Prix EBTS (French Association for Topiary Art and Buis) in 2016.
