The raised moat is lined with large clipped yews. A few great trees, including one of the largest Pagoda trees (sophora japonica) in the Sarthe, surround the dovecote and provide a little shade for the sunny south face of the château. Beyond the moat a wide grassy avenue sweeps away to the south, continuing the axis of the long wooded drive to the north.
