Garden of the Chateau of Talcy

In the valley de la Loire, the recreation of a vegetable and orchard garden between the cattle and its territory

The garden's food growing ambition has been reactivated regarding the site's levels. This six acres wide's enclosure was organised in order to restore spatial links between backyard, fruit garden, vegetable garden, flowerbeds and regular garden.

The regional fruit garden species and tree forming orchard has been planted with withstanding exposure trees, or trained ones, using ancient techniques and forms.

Talcy's gardens place the castle and its domain in Small Beauce's territory, regarding landscape as a manner to link both the village, castle and park.
