self-guided tour of park, dovecote and vegetable garden mid Mar-mid Nov: Sun and Bank Hols 2pm-6pm
Forest covers a third of St-Jean-de-Beauregard. But it is more particularly the château, the walled potager - an ornamental flower and vegetable garden - and its Fêtes des Plantes events that attract thousands of visitors every year. The charm of the estate resides in its setting - a fabulous château commanding magnificent views - and in the architectural harmony of the adjoining buildings (stables, outbuildings, dovecote). These are a fascinating testimony to life in the 17C and 18C.
