The park, now approximately 25 acres in size, exhibits most of the Choulot characteristics, with bosquets of centennial trees, an avenue of pleached limes, chestnuts along the drive, and water features, all linked by a series of sinuous walks, focal points and open perspectives.
The original plans, hand coloured by Choulot’s disabled wife, are artworks in themselves, but unfortunately the plan for Fertot disappeared a century or so ago. Restoration has been informed by a traced copy of the plan, found by the Simonin family, who managed the estate farm for several generations.
Beyond the series of water features, which used to be extensively engineered, there is a small natural waterfall, where the stream has found its own way through the silted-up system of sluice-gates and hydraulics. Around it are several centennial trees.
The lake itself has a small island in the middle which can be reached by two bridges. Some sketched by the comte de Choulot were found which suggest that the original design of the bridges was a suspension type. On the central island is a swan house.
The lime avenue, a hallmark of Choulot's park design, was restored and brought back to its original beauty.
The chateau de Fertot has been registered as a monument historique and a plaque can be found on the front gate of the chateau.
A rarer sight is the park covered in snow which provides unique views.
The fields opposite the chateau were also designed by Choulot and they are also being brought back to their original state. Here is the source for the chateau's lake.
