Les Jardins du Botrain


Prologue

Botrain

A garden is a work of art. Above all, however, it provides an opportunity for exchanging ideas, sharing experiences and meeting other plant lovers.

Marie and Gérard Defaÿsse live this adventure to the full and are passionate enthusiasts of Botrain manor. They have given it back its genteel beauty by surrounding it with theme gardens. A series of over 22 gardens can be found here: visitors on their way from the Japanese garden to the rose garden pass the garden of medicinal plants, the sumptuous English herbaceous borders, the iris garden, the lilac garden, the blue avenue, the undergrowth of rhododendrons, the greenhouse, the vegetable garden and the shore of the pond before finally arriving at the near-natural marsh garden.

The manor and its 18th century apiary of slate are part of Brittany's historical cultural heritage.
