Created in 1997 by a couple, this private arboretum gathers more than 2,000 different varieties of trees and shrubs, nearly 1,100 rosebushes and many perennials. The highlights are in May with the flowering of the heathland plants (azaleas, rhododendrons, etc.), and from June onwards with the roses. Many varieties of flowering shrubs, a mixture of shapes and colours of conifers and deciduous trees present the walker with varied compositions that delight all visitors.
Rich collections of azaleas and rhododendrons, roses, Japanese maples, magnolias, syringas, weigelas, viburnum, chamaecyparis, flowering dogwoods, cryptomerias, picea, pinus and daylilies.
