Bienvenue dans les jardins du château de la ballue

The winding lanes of the Mont-Saint-Michel countryside lead to one of the most magnificent gardens in twenty-first century France. The Gardens of La Ballue, with their many “outdoor rooms,” linked by stunningly designed vistas and spaces filled with imaginative topiary, recall the Italian mannerist style and the Yin Yang inspirations of the landscape architects and creators Paul Maymont & François Hebert Stevens. The gardens were laid out over thirty years ago; since then many different creative ideas have been implemented, each of which has added to the gardens’ mystery and power. The design is dramatic, distinguished by three-dimensional, organic shapes and groups of sculpted allegorical figures in movement. Variety and whimsy characterise the baroque garden, and there are spaces and surprises to discover here in all seasons.
