Visit of the gardens of Maizicourt

Visit of the gardens of Maizicourt

What strikes you when you approach the gardens of Maizicourt is the art of the process that permeates them. Admittedly the spectacle is of any beauty, but it is not there essential, Maizicourt cannot be summarized in simple views "postcards". What makes these gardens especially rich is the experience they offer the visitor. The show really takes place only as you put one foot in front of the other, being aware that the path you take is inside the show, just as you are yourself. In short, Maizicourt allows you to live an interior experience through a fantastic stroll in the middle of neat plant screens. In turn, we will meet a Japanese-inspired garden, with its bamboo and weeping cherry trees, a cloister in which is nestled a "pearly" garden, a dauphine alley lined with wild roses and serviceberry trees… In all, 19 universes spread over 8 hectares are available to us, in this corner of the Somme, both bucolic and charming. The visit can begin!
