Os jardins foram inspirados por clássicos jardins franceses. Como O barão Van Zuylen não teve paciência para esperar as árvores crescerem, ele trouxe árvores de 30 a 50 anos que foram transportadas e plantadas no local.

The gardens were inspired by French classic gardens. As Baron Van Zuylen did not have the patience to wait for the trees to grow, he brought 30 to 50 years old trees that were transported and planted on the spot.
