The Gardens of Eyrignac
The gardens of the manor of EyrignacThe following are without a doubt Historic Monuments since 1986. the Most Beautiful Gardens of Perigord . They've been open to the public since 33 years old and it's no coincidence that every year they host nearly 80,000 visitors.
With its gardens of greenery and flowers, Eyrignac is the vegetable jewel of the Black Perigord, a
enchanted parenthesis a few kilometers from Sarlat.
Around the 17th century manor house extends the French garden where perspective games and
the mastery of Nature stage the boxwood arabesques, the gushing fountains, the
water mirrors, lawn carpets, and the collection of hand-carved plant sculptures by the
gardeners of Eyrignac.
It's a whole different atmosphere, rural and intimate that rules beyond the French garden.
In the Spring Gardenthe Vegetable Gardenthe Florist Garden and the four squares that are the Vagabond Gardenthe Drunkenness Gardenthe Windward Girls' Square and our newest addition, the Reflection of the Sky. The colour palette evolves with the seasons, from soft spring colours to bright summer colours, ending with the flamboyant colours of autumn.
In 2020, the palette of the Eyrignac gardens will be enriched by a range of blues composed of Mediterranean plants, lavender, ceanothes, perovskia ..., which will flower for the first time in the Reflection of the Sky.
The highlight of the visit to Eyrignac is the White Rose Gardenwith its spectacular garlands of flowers and flowerbeds, offering a unique view of the Dordogne countryside.
