A green haven invites you to relax in the heart of surrounding forests.
Sit down. Rest. Relax.
The 6000m² garden in "faïsses" (or terraces) welcomes you to relax in the shade of large trees of various species, read a good book or make a small botanical visit.
Accompanied by the singing of birds, frogs, cicadas, depending on the season.
Pines, cedars, firs, cypresses, oaks, holm oaks, chestnut trees, lindens, hazelnuts, etc. are all found in the forest.
Over the seasons, shrubs and flowers compete in shimmering colours.
Camellias, mimosas and magnolias give way to lilacs, wisteria and cercis trees, then rhododendrons, and finally laurels, bignonias, althéas and summer lilacs.
The spring bulbs - hyacinths, daffodils, tulips - pass the relay to the ancolies, valerians and iris. Then it’s the turn of lavender, hydrangeas and ipomées.
And the botanical garden allows you to discover the aromatics that perfume the dishes you will taste.
Part of the garden consists of forest and meadow, maintained but left in the wild.
The plants are adapted to the climate, chosen for their low need of water to limit watering, partly made with recovered rainwater.
The maintenance of the garden and the forest generates wood, branches and green waste. The wood is used to heat the house, and incidentally for the barbecue.
The branches are crushed into mulch for the beds to limit the need for watering and the growth of weeds.
Green waste is composted, as is vegetablet waste from the kitchen.
We do not use fertilizers or pesticides for the garden.
