The Château d’Eu grounds and gardens
Scents, discoveries and wonderment as you explore Eu
Fancy a fragrant walk through history? Come stroll along the pathways of the Château d’Eu rose garden, a French-style garden designed by the Grande Mademoiselle, cousin of Louis XIV. You’ll admire the roses, rhododendrons and azaleas planted by the king, Louis-Philippe. Arranged in terraces, this ornamental garden overlooks the old canal and leads into beautiful leafy grounds where you’ll find beech trees (which used to include the “Guisard” beech) and conifers, as well as some more exotic varieties. Along the paths, you’ll come across Apollo, Diane or the Duke of Orleans and his valiant warhorse, 4 tonnes of bronze resting only on 2 hooves and overhanging the support!
