The castle was successively owned by the families Halloy and Montpellier and was built in several phases. The facade on the garden side shows the different construction eras since 1627. The castle complex makes a slight curve, just like the Rouillon valley where the castle and its gardens are situated.

The castle is not open to the public, but you can visit the domain of the 18th-century water gardens, the Annevoie Gardens. The Gardens of Annevoie are known for their aesthetic, historic and cultural value, and combine in a tasteful way, the magic of water and the purity of a stylish garden. They were built in 1758 by Charles-Alexis de Montpellier, they unite the French strict gardens with English imagination and an Italian charm.
