"Take time to walk around the park... Dive into water as clear as dew... Laze around in the shade of one hundred-year-old trees... Partake in an authentic game of croquet... Visit the chateau's hen house to discover real black Gallic hens... Before stopping for a drink under the arbour...
This is Germigney, a place where you can experience a treasure thought to be lost forever: Time! "

This legacy is now classified by UNESCO and waiting to be discovered near the chateau.
