In 1853, the Marquis of the time, Rayond-Ismidon-Marie de Bérenger, with a passion for horticulture, redesigned the Château's park in the English style to create a romantic atmosphere and poetic views over the Vercors and Chartreuse massifs: over 3,000 trees and shrubs were planted, including the majestic Cedar of Lebanon. The park, the fruit of centuries of evolution, is now a protected heritage site listed as a Monument Historique.

NB: depending on the demands of the estate's commercial activity, the park may be closed to the public on certain days.
