The grounds offer a magnificent panorama of the art of the Western garden with the French-style garden designed by Le Nôtre in the 17th century, the 18th century Anglo-Chinese garden - which houses the Hamlet that served as a model for Marie-Antoinette's hamlet in the Petit Trianon in Versailles – and the 19th century English garden.
