Parc et Château de Val Seille COURTHéZON

The Val Seille Castle was built by Elie Dussaud, the private engineer for Ferdinand de Lesseps. In 1952, the town bought the castle and converted it into the Town Hall, which is said today to be one of the most beautiful town halls in France. This castle is undeniably a Neo-renaissance edifice, with its newly restored park that was inaugurated in 2001. The park is overflowing with basins and fountains, caves and waterfalls, rose gardens and palm trees, plane trees and local flora. The river that flows through the park is home to wild ducks and swans, always a source of delight for children. An outdoor theatre was built to welcome the Val Seille festivals of music, theatre and song. The Val Seille Park was awarded the 2001 prize for the most beautiful display of flowers and gardens. You can visit many of the castle's rooms, including the art gallery that is currently used for municipal meetings and which has lovely woodwork, allegorical paintings, portraits of artists and famous people of the time, and the ceiling upon which Alfred Casile represented the major construction sites built Elie Dussaud. The winter garden can be visited upon a booking made at the Tourist and Wine Office. Let this extraordinary park lull you into a blissful frame of mind. Free Entry.
