Sur rendez-vous / The Garden can also be viewed by appointment.
Located on a hilltop site on the Lot et Garonne and Gers boundary, 4km from Moncrabeau, in 1998 the site was a field of wild flowers with a ruin needing much attention. To provide shelter in such an exposed situation the garden was divided into different spaces each protected by hedges or a structure to create garden rooms each with its own character. The rooms include a large cobbled area with rill, a fountain and herbaceous beds bordered by a white wisteria and rose walk on one side and a raised hornbeam hedge on the other. Other rooms include a smaller circular garden with sculpture, cypressus and more vibrant planting, a box parterre, a potager and a secluded space with pool and abri. The roooms wrap round the house and are linked by paths, grassed areas and hedges giving a strong structure to the garden throughout the year.
