At the gates of the French Vexin Natural Park, the Château and its Cottage offer an exceptional green setting. It is located in the heart of a 19th century English-listed romantic park and a formidable plant collection of 60 hectares.

The centerpiece of this park is none other than the magnificent “Platanus Orientalis”, planted under Louis XIV. In the autumn of 2015, it was awarded the label “Remarkable Trees of France”. Its circumference is 8.30 meters, its height 38.40 meters, for a ground area of 1500 m2. A species whose longevity is exceptional, as it can reach 4,000 years.


Taken with a Nikon D810 + AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D mounted on a Nodal Ninja 3 MkII head. One row of six shots + zenith/nadir. Optimized with Photoshop/Camera Raw, stitched with PTGui and KRPano Tools.
