In summer and winter alike, children will be thrilled to see the dwarf Canada geese and the ducks in the enclosure at the bottom of the garden
The English garden was created in 1991, at the behest of Dominique Loiseau, and is a distillation of local beauty and a veritable haven of peace. Guests will find mischievous frogs and toads scattered throughout in homage to Bernard Loiseau’s famous recipe for ‘frog’s legs with garlic purée and parsley juice’.
The garden, planted with trees and flowers, is criss-crossed with paths and studded with terraces and fountains. There are nooks where you can relax or chat hidden from view. Summer and winter alike, the vegetation offers a spectacle of contrasting colours with the brilliance of the cherry laurel, the silver-grey foliage of the weeping willow and the ornamental pear, the tubular birthwort and the gentle rustle of the bamboo.
In summer, there is a splendid collection of old-fashioned roses, hydrangeas, peonies, clematis and viburnum, as well as a wide range of annuals, not to mention the strawberries and blackcurrants of Burgundy which add a touch of colour to the garden’s shades of green. It is a place dear to the hearts of garden lovers.
Right at the farthermost corner, behind a tiny house built to shelter an ancient well, there is a real petanque terrain where you can play with friends or family. A fragrant herb garden scents this private haven of peace in the warmth of summer.
And lastly, children will be thrilled to discover an enclosure with ducks and dwarf geese.

In 2001, the Delbard company created a new collection of roses called ‘Great Chefs’. After Guy Savoy, Michel Bras, Pierre Gagnaire and Olivier Rollinger, it was Dominique Loiseau’s turn to join the select few.
The rose which was baptised with her name in October 2003, is a reward for Dominique Loiseau in her pursuit of her late husband’s work. It is a floribunda bush rose with pale pink flowers. There is a flowerbed, in the middle of the garden, planted with the ‘Chef’s Roses’ where you can see all of these original roses.
In September 2010, the Dominique Loiseau rose won the ‘Rose d’Or’ prize awarded by the city of Orléans.
As soon as summer arrives, you can start to enjoy the garden, maybe taking breakfast on your private terrace, your balcony or the terrace in the garden.
The heated landscaped pool, far from prying eyes, has been designed as an amphitheatre so that it always catches the sun. It boasts two beaches and a fine pergola in antique oak where you can sit and sip refreshments. A beautifully peaceful place where you can recharge your batteries far from the hustle and bustle of the city.
