Garden and Terraces


We do not use chemical treatments in the garden which is developed in a very rural style. Surrounded by hedges planted by us, we also created different spaces (kitchen-herbs, orchard, meadow for sheep). To avoid chemical herbicides, we have covered garden paths with small white gravel which will remain visible for some time. But very soon we will have dense and harmonious vegetation that will completely cover the paths and enhance the natural country style garden. At the rear of the house there is a small forest that protects us against winds from the west. In our orchard field we have two sheep grazing quietly together. A piece of fallow land is still waiting for us to create a vegetable garden. The north side of the garden is planted with bushes, shrubs, trees and grass which we are able to access easily with a tractor to stock our heating wood.

Terraces 

Around the house we have three terraces for most weather circumstances, depending on the time of year and the need for sun or shade. If you want more privacy, you can always find a little corner in the garden.

                                The north terrace is very nice when it is very hot. You have a beautiful view 

                                of the fields and forests. In this photo you can see our little forest 50 metres away.

The south facing terrace is nice in spring, autumn and winter. Even in winter, when the wind is not too strong and the sun is shining, you can sit outside.
