A romantic garden that has survived the ages

Let's go back in time. At the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, the art of gardening was in full mutation.
Landscape gardeners turned away from the rectilinear designs of French gardens to English or romantic gardens, skilfully orchestrated by man to provoke emotions and a surprise effect during the walk through remarkable trees, dense copses, grottoes, small bridges or kiosks.
At the end of the 18th century, Jacques Berthault acquired 28 hectares of land at Les Fontaines. His son, Louis Martin Berthault, architect, decorator and above all landscape designer (notably for Empress Eugenie) transformed it into a romantic garden, whose freshness and soul can still be seen today.
More than 200 years later, you can still walk around the pond, admire the islands, take the footbridges and discover the caves.
While on Campus, take a moment to walk these winding paths, discover the remaining traces of Berthault's romantic garden, and enjoy the natural surroundings and charm.
