THE GROUNDS

In the 18th century the Count of Tristan, then owner of Montpoupon, re-created part of the grounds north of the property. In 1773, he was presented with the formal plan, which he accepted. Restoration work in the grounds started in 1786, but was interrupted by the French Revolution.

In 2006, extensive renovations were undertaken to re-dig this stretch of water, which had been filled up in the 19th century. Drawings of the formal gardens were re-drawn and are shown thanks to four patches of grass, in accordance with the original plans of 1773.

The garden is surrounded by water ending in a lake reflecting the castle.

THE FOREST WALK

Take a stroll in the forest, where local fauna and flora abound, look for animal tracks and silhouettes, and many varieties of trees.
Stag, fox, roe deer, wild boar, hare, badger, squirrel, birds, freshwater fish, but also flowers and trees of the Loire valley will no longer hold any secret from you!
During the summer you can get to know our château’s mascots, the horses!
