Parc du Château d'Orcher

Château d'Orcher 76700 GONFREVILLE-L'ORCHER / Vallée de Seine

From the top of the cliff, the Château d’Orcher overlooks the Seine estuary and the Normandy Bridge. Built in the 12th century, the fortress was altered in the 18th century and turned into a refined manor house, now listed a Historic Monument. Surrounded by gardens, the property is home to an 18th century orangery and a terraced vegetable garden.

This ancient fortress located on a rocky outcrop protected Harfleur before being transformed into an elegant residence in the 18th century.

Today, the Harcourt family watches over the listed building and every October organizes a nationally recognized event: Plantes en fête, which brings together nurserymen, landscapers, gardeners and equipment manufacturers. Receptions and seminars follow one another in the elegant orangery dating from the Age of Enlightenment on which delicate wisteria blooms, or in a beautiful brick and flint room facing the medieval tower.

The vast gardens, accessible like the castle from July 1 to August 15, offer you a stroll between intimacy and solemnity, from the undergrowth to the terraces adorned with topiary paths opening onto Honfleur, on the other side of the river. Seine.
