Owner description: A two faces castle Historical monument, Harcourt is a fortress in a bower of verdure : of the mighty castle founded in the twelth century by the Harcourts and strenghtened over the following centuries, a large part of the curtain wall and th moat remain. Only the western facade of the chateau still has its medieval aspect (high walls rising straight from the moat, towers, buttresses). The eastern facade of the chateau was rebuilt around 1700 by Francoise de Brancas,countess of Harcourt. In accordance with the new architectural style of the day,and in order to make it more inhabitable,the moat was filled in and the walls were pierced by tall windows. The arboretum, two centuries old The arboretum is exceptional for its history ;it is a real botanical collection of more than two hundred species, of which the oldest aure two hundred years old. Its existence is associated with some of the most memorable names in the field of horticulture, such as Delamare, Michaux,Pepin, Vilmorin... who have intervened in its development at various points since its foundation in 1810. The arboretum was classified as a <> in 2004.
