Marie’s Garden: combining bucolic and romantic styles

Just a few kilometres from the Sancerre vineyards, Marie Marcat, a landscape gardener with a love of British design, created a true haven of peace over the years. The current owners, Jessica and Boris, aim to keep this paradisical spot open to all. Come and stroll amid the soft colours and fragrances in the heart of the charming Marie’s Garden.

A romantic walk

500 varieties of delicately coloured roses, viburnums with bunches of flowers that stretch out in horizontal layers or form snowball-like clusters, agapanthus… Every season offers a panoply of different flowers. Here and there, benches nestled in the wooded groves allow you to sit and admire the flowerbeds. In Marie’s Garden, everything has been designed to offer a picturesque and peaceful setting, such as the pergolas crowned with beautifully fragrant flowers that adorn the paths.

This bucolic garden is an LPO (French League for the Protection of Birds) refuge and is cared for in an environmentally friendly way, offering a real haven for birds.

A mouthwatering garden 

Sweet or savoury, there is something for everyone in Marie’s Garden! In the orchard and vegetable garden, the plants thrive against the backdrop of the rolling, verdant surroundings and a pretty garden shed brings an extra touch of charm to the place. Some of the vegetables, such as cucumbers and beans, grow up teepee trellis. With each season, a tempting range of fruit are just waiting to be picked from the trees. Apples, pears, cherries, plums, quinces, peaches, nectarines, medlars and persimmon are a mouthwatering sight.
