EYRIGNAC AND GARDENS
The gardens of Eyrignac is a vegetal gem in the Perigord. Here, Alexandrine rigour rubs shoulders with bucolic inspiration. In the French garden, perspective play and knowledge of nature orchestrate the spraying fountains, the watery mirrors, carpets of lawn and an extraordinary collection of topiary art, whereas the Garden of Sources, the Kitchen Garden, the Florists garden and the Floral fields offer a rustic, intimate ad colourful atmosphere. The gardeners favour hand pruning, essential in a place full of tradition which has been in the same family for 500 years. For Eyrignac, you can embroider a small topiary in a pot or a group of topiaries with typical forms for these gardens.
