This garden will be open on Saturday and Sunday during the weekend of "Rendezvous aux jardins" and donations to Open Gardens/Jardins Ouverts would be most gratefully received.
This Garden is also open to visit by appointment.
Our one-acre entirely walled garden is situated in the centre of Portets near vineyards and the river Garonne. It consists of several different grassed areas (rather than lawns!) with a well, a small pond, densely planted flower/shrub beds, roses, fruit and ornamental trees and a kitchen garden. We garden organically and the bees and birds seem to appreciate this!

25 kms south east of Bordeaux just off the main road D1113 (Bordeaux - Toulouse). Turn left at the Portets traffic lights. Cross the level crossing and continue towards the roundabout. Passing in front of the church, take the second right and continue down the main road passing in front of the post office on the right-hand side and the Town Hall on the left. At the end of the Grand Rue there is a Stop sign. Turn left and the house is about 200 yards along on the left. The main gates to the garden will be open on visiting days. Visitors are welcome to picnic on site.
