The gardens at Grand Launay
Also awarded the title of “Jardin Remarquable” by Le Ministère de la Culture, this contemporary garden at Grand Launay is a series of displays following on from one another. Surrounding a 17th century country manor house, on rugged land, there is a vast labyrinthine garden. Everywhere, the gardens are divided into sections, brought into relief by solid features : wrought iron gates, arches, low walls, retaining walls, straight or curved railings, belvederes, painted metal or concrete, upright standing slates, schist and granite. Here and there, topiary shrubs in marked out shapes, rigid or softer forms, some simple ball shapes, some more fantastical beings, clouds here and walls there, tables and windows complete the décor.
The park’s creator : Gaël Bouëdec.
Open from Monday to Friday from 9am until 3pm by appointment only.
Entrance fee €5. Free for children. Sorry ! No dogs allowed.
