Cross this luxuriant garden along a small path amid the wild grasses. Sit on a garden table and enjoy a mint tea. Gather on the pétanque court for a game with friends, or just sit beneath the majestic century-old oaks, which in the height of summer bring us the cool shade we desire.
The rows of dozens of mulberry bushes in the area to the north of our prestige hotel remind us of the site’s former purpose.
In the Cévennes, from the mid-18th century to the mid-19th century, some farms specialised in breeding silk worms for textile businesses in Lyon. The garden was planted with white mulberries, cultivated for their leaves to provide food for the worms.
This mulberry plantation, which had been gradually abandoned, was saved by Guy and Gauthier, who wanted to keep the unique and wild character of the place. Today, nature is thriving again and new plants are appearing of their own accord.
In early spring, the ground is covered with wild violets, aromatic grasses and morels. In summer, visitors can admire a whole palette of green shades interspersed with touches of colour from the garden flowers.
