Not quite so ornamental as Versailles but certainly as awe-inspring in its size. To discover the lake in all its enormity and vista is breathtaking. Go visit if you in Paris !
I recently visited with students and was not sure what to expect, as I have never visited this parc before. What we found was a gem. The parc is worth visiting for the Le Notre cascade alone which is turned on each day around 10am. The parc is well maintained and a popular place for local people who also enjoy the excellent cafe. Le Notre laid out this garden for Colbert with three strong axes each one superb. The chateau houses a museum and the orangery is open most days.
Try to time your visit with their opera and play season.
