    I have visited the garden in mid May. It is superbly designed and extremely well
    maintained. The combination of formal elements and lush cottage style plantings is an absolute treat. The owner Catherine succeeded to give this place a very special, charming atmosphere with many tasteful details and special ideas that are worth copying. The colours of trees,
    shrubs and border plants match in the most delightful way.
    I have seen many gardens all over the world but
    this is doubtlessly one of the very best. It is worth a long detour and I definitely intend to come back.

    My husband and I visited these gardens, for the third time, last week. Whilst a lot of the beds had finished flowering, we must expect this at the end of what has been a difficult summer. However, the animals and the quietness of the gardens were lovely and we aim to visit again next year, for the fourth time, perhaps in June when we can enjoy the garden at its best (weather permitting).

    It is very sad to read the latest comments on this garden and the demise of what was when I visited 3 years ago, one of the most delightful gardens I have visited.

    I am sorry to have to report that this garden is the worst garden which I have visited in France over the past thirty years

    Clearly, awhile ago, it was superb, but it is nonly too obvious that over vrecent months little or no work has taken place. The hedges and pathways are untrimmed and tidy; the borders are awash with weeds; next to no pruning or deagheading has taken place; and basically, the garden is a shambles

    Such an incredibly beautiful and charming garden. The layout is excellent ..a flow of fascinating spaces, some huge and spacious, others more intimate, the planting schemes are a real joy in colour of flowers, textures, simplicity..
    This place is simply delightful ! Not much didnt hit the spot !
