Normandy gardens : Parc et verger "les prés"

Here we are at Criel-sur-Mer, at the park and orchard of ‘Les Prés”… and, as its name suggests there are…. apple trees and a cider distillery. And that would be all if the Tailleux family hadn’t also had the idea of creating a garden on the 8 hectares (20 acres) which make up the estate… a swathe of green surrounding a 1900 villa, with the river Yères on the horizon. Today it’s Adrien, the eldest son who has taken up the baton, and who is over time transforming these salt marshes into a landscaped and decorative nature sanctuary. So this garden is a lovely surprise, from all points of view. The garden around the house will please landscape designers and botanists, the creation of the side channels will delight lovers of exotic plants (many of which were supplied by Charles Boulanger, who is almost a neighbour) and the rest of you will be won over by the use of the natural areas which are kept in a good state of conservation. At the end of your visit, there’s nothing to stop you tasting the house speciality: cider… after all this is also an orchard. http://www.normandie-tourisme.fr/a-voir-a-faire/lieux-de-visite/parcs-et-jardins-de-normandie-300-1.html
