Les jardins d'Annevoie ont 騁 con輹s et am駭ag駸 entre 1758 et 1776 par Charles-Alexis de Montpellier. Son fils, Nicolas-Charles, enrichira l'oeuvre de son p鑽e vers la fin du XVIII鑪e si鐵le tout en conservant le trac de base. Les origines de la famille, 騁ablie Annevoie depuis 1696, remontent au milieu du XV鑪e si鐵le. Au XVIII鑪e si鐵le, les Montpellier 騁aient de c駘鐫res matres de forges et c'est gr稍e cette industrie florissante que Charles-Alexis, mayeur de la Cour des ferrons, aura les moyens d'am駭ager les jardins et d'agrandir le ch穰eau.
------------------------------------------

Designed and laid out between 1758 and 1776 by Charles-Alexis de Montpellier, the gardens are an authentic historical record and above all a living work of art.
The 17th century French-style pleasure gardens at Annevoie were alone in adopting the Italianate and English styles in the 18th century.
As a result of the amalgamation of these three cultures, the gardens were referred to as European-style gardens. Over twenty ornamental lakes and ponds fed by some fifty water jets, fountains and cascades go to make up water gardens which are unique of their type.
