GUIDED TOUR IN A GROUP OF ROSA BONHEUR'S WORKSHOP

Without any contemporary museography or reconstruction, the guided tours of the workshop take visitors back to a 19th century that is more real than life. The archives that have been discovered allow us to tell the story of Rosa Bonheur in a new way. The museum visit includes only the artist's work.

STROLLS IN THE PARK OF THE CHATEAU DE COURANCES

Mid-afternoon, we invite you to discover a magical place, of surprising beauty and still little known... the park of the Château de Courances.

Labeled "Remarkable Garden", the park covers 75 hectares of astonishing diversity, at once harmonious, rustic and refined: undergrowth, stone bridges, ponds and ancient canals rub shoulders with a rigorous French garden and a Anglo-Japanese garden.

Take advantage of this timeless stroll... let yourself be dazzled by the shades of green, the spectacular reflections and the water games... a moment of peace and tranquility.

GOURMET BREAK

In the heart of the gardens, a magnificent stone house, an old hemp mill, has been transformed into a tea room.
It is the ideal place to offer you a refreshment or a hot drink. A rustic, romantic and refined setting where you can rest while contemplating the Japanese Garden and the undergrowth...
