Shh! Listen to the roses, they’re crying with joy.
Smell the pansies, irises and jasmines, brush against the verbena, lemon grass and laurel, sniff the apples, tomatoes and figs.
The water and the breeze gently rock you to sleep.
Jump onto the wave and you’ll find yourself in Paradise.
The huge trees looking down at you are three hundred years old.
The Jardin du Curé, Potager de la Ferme aux Grives, Enclos de la Ferme Thermale, water garden, sprites garden, grassy amphitheatre, main courtyard, Jardin du Kiosque … there are no fewer than eight gardens making up the green patchwork of Les Prés d’Eugénie.
The many herbs which are so typical of Michel Guérard’s Cuisine grow in the kitchen gardens, whereas the rose gardens produce the flowers which are used for all the House’s bouquets.
Further up, hidden from view on the hill of Eugénie, there is an orangery full of clementines, lemons and calamandins.
