Visit of the garden "La Maison"

The garden "La Maison" was born from the hands of an architect, finally returned to his first love for the garden and since installed as a landscape architect in Brittany. In addition to her professional activity which leads her to work on projects of great diversity - from the smallest courtyards and terraces to large gardens and parks -, Clare Oberon has invented a private garden almost on a human scale to serve as a setting in its large Côtes-d'Armor longère. Its British past must have impressed on it the taste for country ambiances that are sometimes falsely wild. Around his house, we will find here a gravel garden, there a garden of grasses, and a few English beds further, thickets of young trees just waiting to flourish. A lovely success for this garden, which has been open to the public since summer 2014 and which, 10 years ago, was still only a field planted with three large oak trees!

Clare Obéron Originally, the front of the house was a farmyard simply backfilled with stones. Since then, the surroundings of the building have largely gained cachet!

Clare Obéron No strict lines around the house, where on the contrary the massifs speak only of softness, as much by their rounded forms as by the nonchalance with which they let themselves be approached by the groves of grasses and flowers around.
