** Brittany is a land of contrasts. Rough in certain aspects, it is rather lenient with regard to the climate, its coasts generally benefit from a renowned oceanic softness. This is the case at Kestellic, an area between water and land which offers visitors the charm of the old stones of its manor and the exotic exuberance of its garden. Hanging on the banks of the Jaudy river, favored by an exposure to the south and protected from the cold winds of winter, the park is a fabulous land of welcome for chilly plants from around the world. This is how mimosas, rhododendrons, camellias and other spring shrubs can flourish whose beauty of flowering is matched only by its fragility in the cold. Let yourself be seduced by the pleasant microclimate of the place and start the visit. **
