Nemours Mansion & Gardens

A twentieth century garden influenced by France but ill-suited to the 'mini-Versailles' label which is sometimes used to describe the garden. There is a terrace north of the house from which steps descend to a reflecting pool. Across the water there is a parterre and a colonnade leading on to a sunken garden with rococo stairways to a sunken garden and a Temple of Love. The garden's atmosphere is closer to south Germany than north France - there is an echo of Linderhof.
