Attraction details
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We have visited this place without big expectations. We have been wrong!
The place is charming, and it is a wonderfull experience.
The garden in well maintained and it is a pleasure to stroll. We have also saw many plants which we do noy have any idea about their existance. The place is devided in several theme areas and you can learn the french names of the different species.
Is is orned with statues, a small museum where you can understand a bit of the rural history of this agricultural zone.
Grant few hours to visit!
The acceptance price is a bit high 7.20 Euro per person.

Near the parking lot (big) thare is a "creperie" which you should not miss. We have been there twice due to the good food (mainly crepes) and service.
It is really the Calvados hospitality

We had a spare day in Le Havre and found this place with the help of tourist office. So glad we did - the gardens are really inspiring and fun to wander around, the creperie is one of the best we have ever visited and there is the chance to buy the owners cider and calvados (and see the distillery) too. Open 7 days a week and worth a detour.

We were the only people there - and althpugh the recommended creperie had closed early for winter and so we were all a bit hungry - we were thoroughly distracted by the variation, and extent of the lush gardens - the only other humans there were the owners, working in the garden. The kids (4 and7) had an absolute ball as they were allowed on the grass (rare in Europe, they discovered) and asked if we could go back there again the next day (we didn't, but i would go again if i could!).

If you like gardens, these are stunning. Not huge, but beautifully designed and pleasantly quirky. Not the place to take kids for the day, but perfect for a quiet stroll with the one you love.

Very peaceful and inspiring.

We visited in late September and were the only people there which was delightful as this series of connected gardens needs peace to appreciate their intimacy and quiet charm. Judging from the huge new visitor centre and car park that is nearing completion,the owners are hoping to attract lots of visitors in the future. If you are at all interested in gardens you shouldn't miss these if you are in Normandy.
