Little remains of the once-famous renaissace and baroque gardens. It was one of the earliest renaissance gardens in France with an axial relationship between the house the garden. This was replaced by an example of what is known as the Anglo-Chinese style. The chateau was designed in the mid-sixteenth century by Philibert de l'Orme for Diane de Poitiers. The chateau survives and there is a drawing of the famed renaissance garden (see Gothein History of garden art).
