The gardens of the Château of Talcy

Fruit trees and bushes are the main feature of the gardens of the Château of Talcy. Apple, pear and cherry trees are all diligently cultivated in this astonishing botanical orchard. The history of the French poet Ronsard has left its mark throughout this estate, where Cassandra, the owner's daughter, inspired him to write the famous ode "Mignonne, allons voir si la rose...".
 

A botanical orchard against a breathtaking backdrop


While apples and pears are the stars of this botanical orchard, which faithfully preserves the agricultural role of the large 18th century farming estate, other mouthwatering fruit varieties such as plums, loquats , blackcurrants, gooseberries and grapes also abound.

This is a garden to get your teeth into, where old varieties of apples and pears are trained in various forms with names like palmettesquatre branches and cinq branches, oblique, Cossonnet, U double, tridentcroisillons, cordon simple and cordon double. Discover these works of tree art as you wander along the avenues of this
luxurious orchard!
 

An ode to romance


It was here in this beautiful manor house that the poet Pierre de Ronsard fell in love with the owner's daughter, the beautiful Cassandra. His love inspired him to write the famous ode "Mignonne, allons voir si la rose...". In the courtyard, the handsome well is covered with roses and still adds a touch of romance.
