Jardin de la Daille

This garden has been developed around an ancient farm and was started in 1985.

The long borders have been planted very much in an English cottage garden style with a mix of flowering shrubs, roses and perennials.

These begin near the house and attractive pigonnier with its lauze (stone) roof and are sheltered by stone walls. The garden then sweeps into the surrounding countryside where the long borders lead the eye towards the kiosk at the bottom of the garden and on to the fields and woods beyond.

In the spring there is a lovely iris collection. The garden has many intresting shrubs and roses including: Malus coronaria 'Charlotte', Rosa 'Macrantha', Viburnum carlesii Diana', and Exochorda serratifolia 'Snow White'.

The garden has been awarded the prestigeous "Jardin Remarquable" status by the French Ministry of Culture.
