Chateau de Celigny

Parks and domains - Historic gardens

At ‘Garengo’, so the story goes, the famous British landscape architect, Russell Page, having accepted an invitation to spend a few days at the chateau, left behind sketches for the re-design of certain parts of the garden in the English style. The conservation of inherited garden designs, whoever their author may have been, requires an extremely tactful and knowledgeable approach. It must be a work of culture, in both senses of the word, so that the beds laid out by Page retain his signature over the years, in spite of the growing vegetation.
