    The garden of the Chanteloup castle (Saint-Germain-lès-Arpajon), owned by the Villeroy-Neufville family, was one of the wonders of the French Renaissance, which could compete with the great Italian gardens of the time. Perrine Galand- Willemen and Matthieu Dejean let revive this exceptional artistic creation in its historical and intellectual context. The authors have studied several travel guides and a long Latin poem entitled Cantilupum (Paris, 1587 ; 1588), which describes the meanders of the garden. Cantilupum was written by Madeleine de l'Aubespine-Villeroy (1546-1596), wife of Secretary of State Nicolas IV de Neufville-Villeroy, lady of honour  of Catherine de Medici, woman of letters whom Ronsard considered his “spiritual daughter”. The garden of Chanteloup housed an extraordinary set of topiaries (carved shrubs), automata, statues, models and fountains, which recreated Roman civilization and offered an initiatory, stoic-Christian course to the walker.
