Initially, the castle of Cormatin was a traditional defensive structure. In the XVII century local aristocrats rebuilt it in the Renaissance style. Now this is a very beautiful place - a castle on the water and a large, well-groomed park.

The park was created in 1620 and in 1815 came to desolation. The earth was used to fill the moat. In 1984 the current owner purchased the castle and carried out restoration works using the old schemes. The moat was again excavated and 13,000 cubic meters of earth was used to restore the park in 1990 - 1993.

We walked only in the park, but it's good idea to visit the castle too, since interior has quite a rich decoration. Check opening hours and prices on the official website.
