The Garden Landscape Guide

Château de Miromesnil

Miromesnil was the birthplace of author Guy de Maupassant. The chateau is set in beautiful wooded country and has a park and potager.  The park is enclosed by a high seventeenth century brick wall (recently restored) and has an old Cedar of Lebanon and notable collection of clematis. The potager (vegetable garden) is divided into squares by grass walkways. Miromesnil runs a programme of events throughout the year such as fundraising dinners and an Easter Egg Hunt.

    An absolutely wonderful place to visit. The potager garden is just beautiful, and the forest and old chapel hidden in the forest are equally fantastic. The chateau is good too - but I loved the gardens the best and would visit them again!!

    A magic walled kitchen garden full to bursting with colour and giant vegetables - well worth a visit. We were given a great welcome and were given excellent tours of the garden and chateau.

    Head gardener Jerome has created an exquisite potager with large swathes of vegetables and flowers mixed to great effect. The family feel is all around as this is a family home and you are beautifully welcomed. There are even rooms to stay in the chateau itself.
