    Monsieur Didier Wirth is the President of the Basse-Normandy Association des Parcs et Jardins and knows more than anyone about the gardens here. His library contains every gardening book ever published. His garden has been described as a French peasant cloaked in Italian finery. He and his wife have planned their formal garden to match the architecture of the house. Four terraces, each with its own garden, rise from the parterre behind the house up to the gate on the horizon. Every detail of the design and planting, all the perspectives and the slopes, have been planned to make the most of this remarkable space.
