** Water has always supplied energy to the mill at the Logis de Forge. First, in the past, in energy intended to work iron, wheat, nuts then paper. Then, in energy intended for the growth of the plants of the wetlands - willows, alders, water lilies ... - and for the animation of aquatic spaces which sometimes take the form of waterfalls, sometimes calm bodies of water, sometimes vast ponds where swans enjoy sailing. In this place rich in history, the approach to the gardens is resolutely contemporary. Within the estate, seven gardens are thus offered successively to the visitor. Each has its own atmosphere, and access from one to the other is via bridges that serve both as a passage and symbolic transition. To design them, Ghislain and Martine de Beaucé drew their inspiration from their stays on different continents. Let's start exploring these botanical travel diaries… **

Ghislain - Martine de Beaucé The house is located in the heart of a wooded hill crossed by a river bearing the gentle name of "Boëme". This water then takes many forms: pond, waterfall, mirror ... So many rhythms that shape various plant universes.

Ghislain - Martine de Beaucé From their travels, some bring back memories for their house ... others inspiration for their gardens. Renaissance Italy is thus well represented through cypresses, waterfalls and sculptures.

Ghislain - Martine de Beaucé When the trees spread their foliage, it is to create a perspective that allows the mill to be placed in a vast aquatic setting that suits it so well.

Ghislain - Martine de Beaucé Who says water, says plants in affinity! This is how the Logis de la Forge garden welcomes many poplars, alders, ash trees, maple trees, oaks, willows and many other species adapted to wetlands.

Ghislain - Martine de Beaucé When the bald cypresses give way to the open space of a clearing, it is to allow the placement of this slender gazebo capable of withstanding the assault of climbing roses and clematis without bending.

Ghislain - Martine de Beaucé Located at the foot of the terrace of the house, in a garden enclosed by dry stone walls, this tranquil water channel is an invitation to dream. It is bordered by roses, gauras and boxwood.
