Normandy has some of the most beautiful gardens in France and one of these is undoubtedly the Jardins du Pays d'Auge on the edge of the pretty little village of Cambremer. The gardens were started in 1994 and have been constantly evolving ever since. The gardens have been awarded "Remarkable Garden" status.

Extending over 3 hectares the gardens contains a series of smaller gardens which follow one from the other in a harmonious fashion. To add charm to many of the gardens the owner has collected and renovated ancient farm buildings built in the beautiful half-timber style of the region and these add an extra dimension to the already beautiful planting.

The gardens include a sun garden full of golden leaves and flowers with orange and red to add to the heat? A moon garden with a small pond and silver and black leaves dominating creates quite a contrast.  An alley made up of Viburnums showcases the variety and beauty of these attractive shrubs which I have to admit are some of my favourites!

A long mixed border adds colour and texture and whilst English in style incorporates flowers such as agapanthus and gaura which are much more common in French gardens.

There are plenty of seats scattered around and so you can choose to relax in scented gardens, colour themed gardens or water gardens. All of them offer beautiful spots to relax. If you are travelling with children then the labyrinth will help to keep them entertained and they are sure to like the donkeys.

The many half-timber buildings have been fitted out as ancient bakers, metal forges and wash houses. The main farmhouse by the entrance is a restaurant that can be hired for weddings etc and there is also a creperie which is open in July and August from lunch time to 9pm and every day except Tuesday and Monday evenings in May, June and September.

Many of the plants in the garden can be bought from the garden shop on site.

The Jardins du Pays d'Auge are open from the first of May until the end of September from 10am to 18.30pm.
