On the Charente Dordogne Perigord border, 5 mn from Aubeterre.

Two hectares of charm and poetry in this garden working in harmony with the natural world, the gardens are tended with respect for the environment and local biodiversity. The walk begins by the green rooms and the themed rose gardens, then opens step by step to the natural garden and lavender field, and finish in the wild area nearby the lake alongside Paloma’s wood. Each space is an evocation of personal memories, holding messages of peace, love and freedom affirmed throughout the walk by artists’ thoughts.

The curiosity shop displays several collections. The leaves of the herbarium guide visitors through three rooms, each one evoking a different aspect of life on earth: rocks and fossils from Nouvelle Aquitaine, the world of plants, birds in our gardens and the history of everyday life in South West of France.
