In the heart of a 25-hectare wooded park, the Domaine de Poulaines, a seigneurial domain mentioned as early as 1340, is made up of marvelous gardens and an arboretum. Magnificent hundred-year-old trees and boxwood surround a Renaissance manor house and its outbuildings. For more than 30 years, we have been bringing this preserved place back to life by restoring the buildings and creating thematic gardens, over 5 hectares, around descriptions and species from the 18th and 19th centuries.
Come and discover the shimmering colors of our thousand flowers and essences, feel the freshness of our streams, our waterway and reconnect with the simple pleasure of tasting the softness of the grass under your feet.
The sculptures of the park will guide your steps to the detour of a path where horses and sheep graze peacefully. On the farm side, a shop offers handicrafts made for the estate and a tea room, facing the flower garden, allows you to discover fruit juices and jams from the orchard, honey from our bees and homemade pastries.
