Gimel et Daillens

Parks and domains

Facing the Jura, with not even a hedge to separate it from the mountains, the property is surrounded by the woods and cultivated fields of a vast area of undulating countryside. At its furthermost edge, a wooden bench leaning against the trunk of a walnut tree hints that the whole of the countryside is a garden to be admired. The flower beds are close to the house. More structured than the rest of the garden, they are planted with rose trees, day lilies, ladies’ mantle and rudbeckias in a harmony of blooms and colours, the detail of which continually changes over the course of the year.
