In upper Normandy, light and nature seem to be in complete agreement. Impressionist painters understood this from the beginning. From immemorial time, Normans have taken advantage of this generous, colorful and temperate natural environment and put their artistic talent to work to create gardens that visitors will be able to discover as they explore the region. Today that tradition endures and the modern artist-gardeners play with forms, colors and harmonious designs for our pleasure.
