Jardin "Intérieur à ciel ouvert"

Parks and gardens

‘Intérieur à ciel ouvert’ is a large contemporary garden of almost an acre, created in March 2000 by visual artists Dominique and Benoît Delomez. The artists present ten different atmospheric garden areas, alternating between the poetic, intimate and fun. Water is present everywhere - the wildlife pond hosting newts and frogs; the exotic pond with Koi carp and turtles; fountains and running water - all creating a calm, soothing atmosphere where visitors can dream and explore at their leisure. There is a huge range of plants to be seen – perennials, grasses and small shrubs. The artists have used local specimens and there is a collection of named varieties of fern. A kitchen garden, in tones of orange and red, contains fruit trees, vegetables, aromatic and medicinal plants- magnified by the clever positioning of mirrors. Visitors turn a corner and are surprised by a contemporary work of art.
