The architecture of the service courtyard, situated at a lower level to the south of the château, is different with its “Mansart style” roofs. On the west side, the orangery faces the courtyard. To the north, the building accommodating the stables and saddle rooms separates the château from the main farm building.
However, although they give the impression of an ancient atrium, the light well and the balusters are not original.
The wrought iron balusters, torn up during the Revolution, have been replaced by wood painted to look like stone.
In the late 19th century, glazing replaced the lantern of which we have no real representation.
