Notes: Château d'Ambleville is a Renaissance castle located in the French Vexin. The area classified as historical monuments, is part of the Regional Natural Park of French Vexin. Leprêtre sold the castle to Charles Sedelmeyer in 1893. In this family, Charles Sedelmeyer (1837-1925) stands out as famous art dealer. It restores the castle at great expense and it installed a theater, fireplaces and Venetian balconies, and it adorns the garden of Italian statues now kept in Villarceaux. Three years after his disappearance, the family of Villefranche Tulle becomes the owner of the castle and the rest until 2003, when the Coutau-Bégarie family succeeds them. She started since 2003 a major reconstruction of the original gardens campaign. He received the Outstanding Garden label, awarded by the Ministry of Culture. A portrait of Louis XVIII in his coronation robes, is present in the castle walls. The gardens of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries were revised in 1928 by the new owner, the Marquise de Villefranche, and are based on those of the restoration of the Villa Gamberaia in Florence. They offer a particularly successful example of Italian garden.
