Park : 20 acres. Garden : 6 acres
Since 1986 the park of the Miserey chateau has established herbaceous borders in the tradition of English gardens. These ambellish the English style park designed in 1813 by J.J. Lavenas, afterwards remodelled by the landscaper Renaud about 1830.
The real renewal of the park began again in 1996 with the creation of the “thematic gardens“ conceived on a cruciform plan, where Hell is a collection of spiny shrubs ; Purgatory an alley of Irish yew and Eden a collection of thornless roses. Miserey also posseses a rose garden and is a member of the “Rose Garden Route“.
Architectural features of the garden originating from the 18th century are contemporary with the chateau and include the grennhouse and orangery, the “Saut de Loups“ (ha-ha), verdant “Rooms“ made up of lime trees planted in circles and the belvedere.
The park is a “Site Classé“ with the label “Jardins Remarquables“.
