The garden was formerly directly linked to the castle of Yvoire. In the 19th century, Baron François, fond of botany, planted a lot of rare trees all around the castle.
Much later, in the 1980s, one of the plot became an abandoned kitchen garden.
The project of Yves and Anne-Monique d’Yvoire, the owners, is to revive the garden keeping the link with the history of the village.
They launch a genuine contemporary creation based on ancient elements.
30 years later, the trees of Baron François are always present and pampered. They are now surrounded by a collection of more than 1,300 varieties spread across several gardens.
Among them, lost and forgotten vegetable species whose culture is entrusted to us by the Resource Center of Applied Botany of Lyon.
