Park Review

Le Nôtre's park is based on that familiar French royal combination of formality and romantic eccentricity, the former represented in the neatly planned parterres and a mighty, straight-banked canal, and the latter coming to the fore in the waterfall and the Hameau, a mock-Norman village that inspired Marie-Antoinette's version at Versailles. You can explore on foot or on an electric train, and, in the warmer months, take a rowboat for a meander down the Grand Canal.
