The Val Maubrune garden

The Val Maubrune garden is a "landscaped garden" that's completely integrated into the undulating countryside of la Creuse. The garden covers 1.3 hectares and is surrounded by 6 hectares of woods and prairie flowers.

Jardin de Valmaubrune

The garden is made up of :

  • Willow woods where the naked trunks of willow trees and the large waves of vivacious pants and ferns give you far-reaching views,
  • Wild sedge bogs,
  • An under-wood, criss-crossed with tiny streams, and covered with a carpet of mosses and ferns.

Lots of inviting seats and benches along the walk.

The garden's owners have striven for a balance between the intimate and the large scale, between native and exotic plants, between the tame and the untamed whilst all the while creating surprise and emotion.


The Val Maubrune garden was awarded the Jardin Coup de Coeur prize in 2012 by the association of Journalists of the Garden and Horticulture.
