Domaine D'Harcourt is a beautiful Chateau and Arboretum. It is well worth a visit, or just to walk through the grounds or bring your family and have a picnic.

The castle though small has lots of interesting historical information. The grounds are lovely to walk around with the added interest of many different trees. It is a great place to walk the dog and let kids have a run around.

The place has two hghlights : first there is the setup of the old castle, that reflects the medieval Norman structure with deep defensive ditches and a pre-castle. Next is the botanical park around the castle with a collection dating as of 18..+
