About
The project of the Estate of Garenne-Lemot was born out of the mind of sculptor Francois-Frederic Lemot. Between 1805 and 1827, on the banks of the Sevre Nantaise, the artist created a remarkable architectural estate and an exhibition hall.

Step into an 18th century painting in Clisson
Sep 2016 • Friends
I have visited Garenne Lemot a couple of other times several years ago. With a friend and some visiting children we saw the museum and the gardener's home and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Later we visited the gardens to take wedding pictures. This time we visited inside the villa or home itself; during the days of patrimony, it was free. The home is gorgeous on the outside; on the inside there were nice sculptures, a temporary art exhibit, and few if any furnishings. However, visiting the home did make it clear that Lemot was a prominent sculptor of the time. It was he who influenced Clisson to use the Italian architecture style which makes is one of the most charming towns you will see in northwest France. Around the estate are many paths which make for a good, sometimes a bit strenuous hike. I would like to return with a picnic in spring and revisit the gardener's house and museum, but it is not necessary to pay entry fee to see the inside of Lemot's mansion. Great photo ops with the temples and beautiful woodsy gardens.

Typical french villa in beautiful setting

Only walked round the extensive garden (which is free) but it was a lovely setting and would definitely go back to view the house and villa.

Large park with extensive walks
Oct 2014 • Friends
This very large park contains a lot of various items - Villa Lemot, Gardener's House, Temple to Vesta, Roundabout of Diana and many other interesting items along these extensive walks. When we visited we were bombarded with concors.
