Located in a natural setting where the harmony of forests and green meadows reigns, the landscaped park is first and foremost a place of relaxation and rest where walkers can come and recharge their batteries in the company of flowers and trees. This 4-hectare garden located at an altitude of 550 meters is made up of 10 landscaped areas linked together by grassy pathways, stone or pine bark paths. The landscaper Jacques Couturieux has kept certain traces of the past: a pink sandstone quarry as well as a trench from the 14-18 war. Both have been landscaped in order to highlight them and thus be able to observe the plants in a completely different way. The spontaneous vegetation made up of large trees (oaks, birches, ashes, hornbeams, beeches, Scots pines, lime trees, cherry trees, maples, wild service trees) has been largely preserved in order to maintain a certain maturity in the landscape.
