Tirelessly created and tended by Princess Sturza from 1957, this highly unusual estate has played a major role in reviving the art of gardens in France. Its creator had two requirements when she modelled and planted this Normandy vale, which were to make sure that there was something new to see every day of the year and that there was an interesting point of view from every spot in the garden. The superlative result can be admired by the present-day visitor, often amazed by the perfection of these natural "portraits".
