Tell us the amazing story of these gardens…Dominique Le Sidaner: "It was on the advice of the sculptor Auguste Rodin and the ceramist Auguste Delaherche that my grandfather discovered Gerberoy, where he bought a house in 1904 that he restored little by little. The place corresponded in all respects to his expectations, since he was looking for an atypical but peaceful garden to paint his paintings in. Over the years, he made various acquisitions to enlarge house and garden, then set about building a workshop in an old Each element of the garden - pavilion, arches and weather vanes - was designed by my ancestor, who had a very precise idea of what he wanted.
How are they articulated today?
How do you manage to maintain such a space, so steeped in history?We make sure to respect as much as possible the plans and the plant choices of Henri Le Sidaner. He liked certain varieties of roses, but also wisteria, clematis or even the silver baskets. We sometimes buy our plants abroad when ours collapse so that the gardens retain their original appearance with specific flowers. However the most complicated undoubtedly remains the mowing of the grass, because the numerous Italian terraces and the steep plots of land make certain parts of the garden inaccessible!
