le Parc du Bois des Moutiers
"The house of the Parc du Bois des Moutiers was created for Guillaume Mallet by Sir Edwin Lutyens and is built in the Arts and Crafts style for which Lutyens is reknowned.
To help him with the garden he collaborated with Gertrude Jekyll as he did quite often.
The result is a wonderful garden and park with the added benefit that the 12 hectares are in a peaceful valley running down to the sea. Another benefit is the acid soil which allowed the planting of numerous rare species including Himalayan rhododendrons, Chinese Azaleas and more.
The Normandy climate means that these have grown magnificently too and there are rhododendrons which are 10 meters high.This garden is situated at Varengeville near Dieppe on the Normandy coast."
I really enjoyed this causal garden, very relaxed with structure. Lovely.
