  • Arboretum located in the heart of the Orleans Forest in Ingrannes. A 14-hectare park maintained without synthetic chemicals since its creation in 1973 (first plantations - opening in 1979). French garden, English garden, Asian arboretum, American arboretum, pond, maze and vegetable garden. The arboretum is home to many rare and even extinct species from their original environment. Very well maintained. Very relaxing. Dogs not allowed. Entrance 10 euros per person.

  • I love gardens and visit them regularly. Despite the capricious weather, the Arboretum des Grandes Bruyères was a real enchanted parenthesis. Dogwoods, rhododendrons and roses, aisle arrangement, gardens of various inspirations, everything was there to make this visit exceptional. But I am sure that this sublime garden must be exceptional in all seasons, given the richness and diversity of all its essences.

  • Such an amazing escape from everything!
  • A large number of species, some very rare, separate gardens, Asian, English, French, American and especially the highlight of our visit was to stumble upon the creator of this place, which has kindly told us the story. The house is splendid, the gardens are incredibly maintained and, it deserves to be mentioned, without any chemical, everything is beautiful and serene. At the exit, it is this time the person who takes care of the foundation who came to speak to us.
