A beautiful house and formal gardens. In nice weather, the fountains, water features and walks are really lovely. You can't go into the house but the views of it over the moat/lake are really lovely. Well worth a visit!

This was a lovely place to visit - gardens are beautiful and it is interesting to read about how the water is sourced from the spring. It was particularly nice to visit on a really hot day as there is plenty of shade and you can dip your feet into the grotto water (very cold!). We got a friendly welcome from the gift shop / ticket desk and the map takes you on a nice tour around the gardens, where you can see the exterior of the chateau which is currently closed - but still interesting to see the renovations. There is a small playground which we didn’t use only because it was so hot! Would also recommend the cafe next door, which overlooks the gardens. It has a nice self-service menu and food was good.

A very beautiful water garden which offers wonderful scenarios in a calm and peaceful setting. I was lucky with quite few visitors at my time of visit.

There are some birds and insects to witness if you´re lucky.
Also a lot of free parking spot on the other side of the road.

There is a large dedicated car park right in front of the garden with a parking fee of 1.50 euros, which you pay with your tickets at the garden's entry.

The entrance fee is 6.50 euros per adult, and 1.50 euros for the guide, which has little information besides the map.

Toilets available.

The map has a suggested path to view the garden which is signaled by arrows along the path itself.

The garden is a mix of styles:

- french: art corrects nature: very angular, perfectly defined. Think Versailles;
- english: art imitates nature: the exact opposite;
- italian: emphasis on creating little sceneries, each different, often involving water jet, to awe-struck the viewer.

We followed the suggested path which takes you through each and everyone of these sceneries. The castle bordered by water is one of the most beautiful of those, but its interior isn't part of the visit.

The sceneries are unique each in their own way. They often involve statues and water: small rivers, water stretches, fountains, jets of water. A particularity of the garden is that the fountains don't use pumps, but merely gravity to work, using the principle of communicating vessels.

The visit took us, with few short stops, an hour and a half.

There is a restaurant at the end of the terrace overlooking the garden. We didn't try it.

Conclusion: gorgeous romantic gardens perfect for a stroll on a sunny day.

Tips and Tricks:

Some days during the year, they organise Venetian parades, with people in costumes greeting the visitors along the path.

We didn't visit the gardens on such a day. Quite the opposite, we almost had the place to ourselves. We prefered it that way.

We started by having lunch in the self-serve cafetaria there. They have not much different foods, but it's a cute place. They sell sandwiches, wraps and a stew to eat, with pie and muffins as dessert. The gardens are really pretty. They planned out a route though the gardens, with a map that offered interesting facts and stories of little viewpoints in the gardens. It's a nice place to quietly stroll though, have a nice date, take some pretty and aesthetic pictures. I'd recommend this if you are able to take a long walk, not easily bored, or if you really like nice gardens and taking pretty pictures.

Plenty of photo opportunities in this great garden/park with some historic buildings inside. Now open all year round. For lunch before or after, consider the nearby Maredsous Abbey.

A beautiful place with stunning water gardens and flowers. The kitchen garden was in full bloom and looked fabulous. Accessible with a pram but gravelly and one steepish hill to bare in mind, though none of that hindered a wonderful visit!

Lovely gardens, ideal for a walk! They were designed and laid out by Charles-Alexis de Montpellier in the 18th century. The gardens combine three styles: French, Italian and English. There is also a castle, but it’s not possible to visit it.

Don't come here if you want to look at beautiful flowers. That is not the point of the garden. This is an early example of a water garden, and there are lots of fountains dotted around the delightfully landscaped grounds of a chateaux. It was very peaceful and relaxing when we went. The map helps you to get around quite easily. I enjoyed frogs leaping into their pond at the sound of my tread. It is amazing that these fountains have been flowing for about 250 years, powered by nothing more than ingenuity and gravity. If you have time, you could do worse than have lunch at Bocow on site. This visit passed 90 minutes most agreeably.

The fountains are the most impressive part… they are amazing. water cascades down a hill side and fills canals and fountains by gravity. No motors. The gardens are lovely… some parts in the French, Italian and English style. lots of water features. Swans. Lovely symmetry and lines. A wonderful afternoon on a non-rainy day.

I thought the admission and the parking fee were a bit steep.
