Gardens are an inseparable part of the history of Brittany, its explorers who brought back plants from all over the world, and its temperate climate, ideal for the acclimatisation of exotic plants. This circuit proposes a discovery of some of the loveliest gardens in Brittany, some of which are internationally famous, others of which are more secretive and known only to the initiated. In Rennes, your customers will discover the emblematic Thabor Park, ranked among the most beautiful gardens in France, before going to Rocher-Portail castle, the French version of Downton Abbey. The gardens and vegetable plots of this sumptuous manor house are listed Historical Monuments. Going back up the Rance valley, the estate of Montmarin, an 18th-century manor house, reveals splendid formal French gardens.
At Ballue Castle, which has the Remarkable Garden label, the labyrinthine and fun path, inspired by Baroque Italy, plays with shade and light.
Lastly, on the Pink Granite Coast, where the micro-climate is conducive to the acclimatisation of many plants, the gardens are out of this world. The romantic garden of Kerdalo or the exotic garden of Kestellic are among the most beautiful. This circuit is also the opportunity to discover several major Breton sites like Tréguier, a Small Town of Character, Paimpol and its lively port, and also Bréhat, rightly nicknamed the island of flowers…
