The "Luco" ( a term used by parisians to describe the garden) was created in 1612 under the initiative of Marie de Medicis and redesigned in 1635 by Andre Le Notre (Versailles' landscape architect). It is full of charm and little surprises and is ideal for a morning walk or jog. It harbors the "Parisian" beehive, which will give you a chance to bring forward your "beekeeping" tendencies. Furthermore, you will find an old apple orchard, a greenhouse specialized in orchids, many statues; Beethoven, Baudelaire... and among them, a much smaller version of "Lady Liberty" herself. The fountains... Aah, the fountains ! The main one, built in 1881, is very popular with children as it is where they steer their little boats wooden sticks.
