Characteristics of the garden

A garden a bit ‘parky’ with beautiful views over the surrounding landscape towards the hills which gives this garden an almost unlimited feeling of depth and peace.

The layout is dominated by strong cultivation near the farmhouse leading you naturally to the landscape near the borders. Flowers are concentrated around the house and near the edges are fruit trees and bushes as well as grapevines.

Hedges of beech, buxus and yew provide natural boundaries to the flower borders. Groups of trees, a natural pond, a small brook as well as fruit trees and bushes and grapevines complete this garden. Here also can be found the orangery and an authentic baking house.
