‘Le Jardin des Cinq Sens’ (The Garden of Five Senses) is inspired by the romantic settings of medieval mazes. Several intimate gardens with evocative names are like an invitation to awake the senses: ‘Jardin du Goût’ (the Taste Garden), ‘Jardin de l’Odorat’ (the Scented Garden), ‘Cloître de plantes médicinales’ (the Cloister of Medicinal Plants), ‘Prairie Alpine’ (the Alpine Meadow), etc. Each area pays homage to the richness of the plant world.
No fewer than 1500 varieties evolve with the seasons for the pleasure of everyone. Legendary plants, foliage with astonishing textures, collection of fragrant plants, curious vegetables, roses ... Everyone visits at their own pace for a sensory walk in the heart of a patiently developed living work.
