Le Jardin d'Angélique
Amateur gardeners Gloria and Yves Lebellegard created this garden in 1989 in memory of their elder daughter Angélique. Since her husband’s death, Gloria has continued the task with the help of her daughter Claire… Yves loved roses: today, the garden contains over 2000 different varieties. Gloria studied fine arts in Spain, and approaches designing the beds like an artist in front of a canvas, looking for perfect colour balance and control. The XVIIth century mansion looks down on two gardens each created from scratch: one dreamy, romantic, where grassy paths wind between beds rich in subtle colours; and one Italianate, with box-edged beds of perennials and ornamental grasses, punctuated by yew topiary.
