THE GARDENS OF L'EPINAY

 

The grounds of the Château cover 23 hectares, providing lovely walks for nature lovers. The range of different age-old trees surrounding the Château will transport you back in time. Why not take time to enjoy the pure pleasure of an after-lunch nap in the hammocks under the chestnut, lulled to sleep by the wind rustling their leaves, the birdsong and the trickling water? 

Garden lovers will be wowed by our alleys of irises, the roses climbing over the façades and the grotto hidden by plants! The grounds are filled with both trees and flowers, and these are much-loved by the bees in our hives. Running alongside the grounds is an old branch of the Loire and a small lake. If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the majestic white swan, but you are sure to see the ducks taking off!
