Domaine de Primard extends over more than 30 hectares on both sides of the river Eure: its layout is representative of the pleasure estates of the Ancien Régime: it consists of a noble house, old agricultural buildings surrounding an orchard, a farm and a longère, a woodshed and a vegetable garden. Woods, meadows, and gardens are laid out all around. Built at the end of the 18th century, Primard is a perfect example of French-style orderliness and classicism.
The gardens surrounding the house highlight the layout of the buildings and integrate the surrounding nature.
But the specificity of the place lies above all in the omnipresence of water: whether it be the banks of the Eure River which runs for several kilometres along the Domaine, the moat in which the House is reflected, the pond hosting wild birds, or the small stream meandering from east to west through the gardens. From the Château's adjoining halls, this impression is even more striking: wherever you look, the water sparkles.
Primard takes the shape of an island.
