BALLUE CHATEAU AND GARDENS
The Ballue gardens are a rare example of French mannerism. The only original piece remaining from these 17th century gardens is the terrace overlooking the Mont St Michel Bay. Claude Artaud and her husband François-Hebert Stevens, infused a subtle blend of mannerist style and contemporary implantation. The present owner, Marie-Françoise Mathon has pursued the work of her predecessors with passion. The exceptional nature of the Ballue gardens was rewarded in 2017 with a 2nd prize in the European Garden Awards. For Ballue, you can embroider the small topiaries or a beautiful large wisteria.
