The second part, behind a superb baroque hedge of topiaries designed by the owner, gives way to more open plantings around a pond dug in 1994. This is where you will find the national
conservatory of botanical roses, one of only two in France.
Around the pond, daisies and lavender keep the rosebushes company while carp, moorhens, ducks... bring this beautiful environment to life.
The collection of botanical roses allows you to discover that the eglantine, ancestor of our roses, does not have only one variety.
These roses come from China, America and the Middle East. They flower abundantly, but only once a year, unlike the remontant roses.
And they offer small, colourful fruits afterwards.
The owner will be able to talk to you passionately about these roses, their history and even what we call their thorns, their prickles!
