Arboretum des Grandes Bruyères

The Arboretum des Grandes Bruyères lies at the heart of the forest of Orléans. It is a haven of peace that is home to an impressive range of collections, painstakingly developed with artistic talent for over 40 years. 
 

Colours for all the seasons


The Arboretum des Grandes Bruyères will enchant you with every step. Follow the grassy, heather-line walkways which will guide you through the Arboretum to see collections of magnolias, dogwoods and... delicate colours of heather!

In summer, take in the subtle scent of the rose collection, which contains nearly 1,000 old plants in shades of pink, white and red.

Later on in the autumn, the trees that blossom in springtime a display foliage of a thousand colours. All kinds of shades of red, orange and yellow light up the beautiful autumn days, guaranteeing a breathtaking visit. This period is also a festival of fragrances, with a mixture of scents of mosses, fungi and bark...

These protected spaces are also a paradise for birds. Over 100 species live here and their birdsong will accompany you on your walk.
