The La Borde garden : The garden has been distinguished with the label Remarkable Garden.
From 1997 to 2011 we have very carefully transformed the original 7 ha of fields, taking care to respect the ecological balance of the natural spaces around us. In this spirit, the lime tree parkway that joins the buildings to the copse and the lake was the starting point for a thorough restructuration of the green spaces around the site. The kitchen garden of 1600 m2 was created in 2000. A genuine prolongation of the harmony of the buildings, it has kept the proportions of the two original square courts.In 2003 the rosegarden, the orchard and the French garden have been created in close succession.
Since 2006, our priority has been the development of our variety of tree species, and we now have about fifty species.
