Place Mussard

Contemporary gardens

The house stands in the middle of a vast area of wooded countryside. It is a house from a bygone age – unflamboyant, with grey slatted shutters against walls painted in faded pink. It has been subtly restored by a couple having an appreciation of the arts.

In high summer, the garden takes its colour from the old-fashioned roses and perennials planted in small beds dotted irregularly over the lawn and enclosed by little boxwood benches. The whole has been arranged so that time itself appears to add its poetry to the scene.
