THE GARDEN OF FIVE SENSES IN YVOIRE
The enclosure of the Château d’Yvoire on the edge of Lake Léman is a wonderful vegetal universe. The Garden of Five Senses was converted in the 1980’s by Anne-Monique and Yves d’Yvoire. Simple, modest and sober, 4 squares delimited by 2 perpendicular alleys with a central fountain as the only decoration, the medieval garden is rich in its symbolism. The plants awaken the senses: the varieties of apples, the vegetables and the simplicity provoke taste and smell. The hues of greens, the palette of warm and cold colours seduce the eyes. Skim, rub, and caress the leaves - a pleasure for the hands. The melodious sound of the birds charms the ears. For Yvoire, you can embroider a reinette apple or a staked apple tree.
