Gardens to Visit in Morbihan (56)

Parc du Château de Kerlevenan

Behind the walls there are 30 hectares of gardens. Both French and English styles are cleverly combined here, giving this place its unique character. You can stroll around the grounds of the 18th century château, planted with a huge variety of trees and shrubs   (Lebanese cedar, evergreen oak, chestnut trees etc.).  These gardens also house what used to be the Temple de l’Amour, or Temple of Love,, which is now a family chapel, and a small Chinese style bandstand surrounded by water.

Domaine de Kerguéhennec

 In its vast landscaped grounds you’ll find an 18thcentury château and a sculpture park that’s ranked as one of the best in Europe. You’ll make some surprising discoveries as you stroll through the artwork and the trees, from the greenhouse to the stables and in the heart of the woods.   Around 30 monumental sculptures are dotted across the park – along the paths, round the corner of a low wall or in the heart of the woods. The south garden starts off in the French style before opening up onto a wooded area. The northern side flirts with an English style. The Count of Lanjuinais, the former owner, planted an arboretum here, and species from all over the world add colour, or provide shade to the lawns. Sequoias and tulip trees stand together with local species. Woodpeckers, red-breasted nuthatches and treecreepers live in their foliage.  Restaurant on site.
