The Mesnil Garden is an Anglo-Norman garden that has been embroidered over the years. It is situated 30 km to the North of Rouen in the Brayon countryside in the Seine Maritime department in Normandie. Its structure is particularly adapted to Japanese Maples, Cornus, Magnolias, Liquidambars, Hydrangeas, Rhododendrons, and other trees and shrubs from around the world, some of them rare. It's a walk on 4 hectares that awaits the visitor, in a paradise of biodiversity. A moment of peace with the birds, the insects and the frogs for only musicians in this place dedicated to silence. At the end of your visit, you could partake of the elaborate snacks that the owner likes to prepare for her visitors in the tea room ”La Hulotte” (The Tawny Owl).
