The Gardens of Viels-Maisons, close to Provins

11 place du  Marché
02540 Viels-Maisons







Nestled beside a charming 11th-century Romanesque church, you’ll find The Viels-Maisons Gardens, a truly peaceful sanctum classified by the French Ministry of Culture as a “Remarkable Garden“, spread over 3 hectares.

“The Sundial”. “The Garden of the Four Seasons”. “The English Garden”. “The Wild Garden”. “The Topiaries”.  These are the names of the successive gardens — each with its own unique ambience — conceived and created by owner Bertrande de Ladoucette.

The generations-old roses and shrubs of every size and shape, cast in brilliant splashes of colour, will awaken your senses and make you want to freeze time… or rather, to savour the moment before enveloping your whole soul around it.

Are you familiar with the art of topiary?
The aim of this art form is to give shape to shrubs. Most often, these are done in geometric shapes: round, conic, or spiral. They can even take the shape of animals or be magical just because they are born from your imagination!
You’ll discover a beautiful collection that will certainly inspire you at The Gardens of Viels-Maisons.
