Such a peacefull place near by Montoire sur le Loir, where I live.
It is in the Loire valley that the gardens were famous under the kings during all periods of the French history.
This is a wonderfull private garden open to public in 1996. The flowers are so great, the manucured bushes, with very interresting shapes are wonderfull.
You will find yourself in a timeless garden with a peaceful atmosphere around a freshwater lake with its waterfall. In all seasons the romantic setting of Le Plessis Sasnières is ideal for a stroll. You are enchanted by the abundance of rosebushes – ancient and modern varieties – subtly combined with perennials. The flowery fence around the large vegetable garden and its original arched pergola, and the rockwork are all invitations for a walk with your friends or family.
I discovered so many rare flowers ans beautiful roses, that I go there a few times in the year.
Just the grass is making you feel you are walking on velvet. I do not remember how many tons of sand they use every winter to drain the grass.
Simple is chic, that is what their home looks like and you cannot miss it.
It is never too crowded, so you will always enjoy a great relaxing moment there, at the gardens of “Le Plessis Sasnieres“.
Home made icecreams and pastries will be served with a cup of tea or soft drinks in the café or outside under an umbrella.
It is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Nice things and some plants are for sale at the “Boutique”.
Trully, peace on Earth.
