Basse Fontaine Gardens
Tourist service in Puyméras :Jean-Paul Boyer did not wait to receive the official 'Jardin remarquable' (Remarkable Garden) label, before transforming the perimeter of his house into a series of enchanting and astonishing gardens. You will be left smiling in amazement and admiration at each element of the garden that you see. The owner takes on the role of passionate and knowledgeable guide, directing you through this palace of greenery.
Moreover, you will find the childrens' garden, with a hut and its little wrought iron fence, a tree house complete with wooden ladder... dream of the childhood days! There is also a big arbour made up of oak trees coming from the Puyméras mountain, surrounded by annual vegetable patches. At the end you will find a chicken coop and tortoise area (because, what is a garden without animals?).
Surprises come at every corner. A throne built for a giant in a tree stump; funny sculptures made out of all sorts of pots; round faces, smiling or grimacing, painted on old demijohns found amongst the flowerbeds.
The big greenhouse displays a collection of 1,000 tools that Jean Paul and Noëlle have collected on a bargain-hunt or on their travels.
Each plant has its raison d'être - chosen for this delightful garden with love and care.
