"Topiary, Art and Mannerism" Weekend

From 24 May to 25 May
Demonstrations of pruning, lectures, Workshop, ...

The gardening event of La Ballue!

For its sixth edition, this unique event allows visitors to observe demonstrations of pruning and the creation of topiaries in the gardens of La Ballue.

Three of our gardeners will demonstrate their considerable skill, showing some of the techniques they use to prune and sculpt our many bushes, shrubs and trees. A range of these tools, along with an explanation of their use and maintenance will be available for viewing in the “tool” workshop.

Hubert Puzenat, the architect of the gardens and a topiary specialist, will create topiary sculptures in person. He will also be signing copies of his book, The Art of Topiary, published by Editions Rustica.

A lecture on topiary art will be given at 3:00 PM on both Saturday and Sunday afternoon. And the topiaries themselves will be available for purchase!

There will also be a presentation and signing of the book on the Gardens of La Ballue: “Variations on a garden,” published by Editions P.H. Verlhac, with the photographs of Yann Monel and texts by Marianne Niermans.

And the presentation of the detailed maquette of the gardens and topiaries created by Jacques Hennequin.

 

Opening hours: 10:00 AM to 6:30 PM without interruption

Prices: 9,50 euros for adults, 7,50 euros for young people 10-18 years old and students, children under 10 free.

Innovation in the Chateau of La Ballue: an outdoor spa in the heart of nature…

In the Chateau of La Ballue, the nature is like a queen

And in order our guests revitalize themselves, we’ve created a special outdoor relaxation space, composed of a bubble bath and a sauna, in the secret Garden of the Moats.

Even during winter, you will spend an unexpected moment in the heart of this well-being area and benefit from a 37° C water in the bubble bath.

High ranges in Mont-Saint-Michel and Saint-Malo

The Chateau of La Ballue, located just 30 minutes from the Mont-Saint-Michel and 1 hour from Saint-Malo, will be the ideal place to spend a stay between Brittany and Normandy and to come to benefit from a splendid sight.

Indeed, about twenty times per year, the highest tides phenomena takes place in Mont-Saint-Michel to give it again its insularity.

The high ranges, higher to 100, promise a spectacular show only during 4:30.

 

This phenomena takes place also in Saint-Malo.
