Le Jardin de Sardy, Dordogne

With my new found enthusiasm for gardening and a tough 34oC day in the Bordeaux sun. We could only think of one thing to do on our wee holiday last week. Go to a shady glade and relax.

I thought I’d share some photos as I found the place beautiful. It was a bit pricey at €6 given it is quite small. But it was so interesting I think it was worth it.

The garden entrance was through a courtyard where we had been told to touch all the plants and smell the scent.

There were amazing patchouli plants, lavender, mint, thyme, and others I couldn’t recognise though the smell was intoxicating. We never found the chocolate plant sadly.

After the courtyard you walk down to a copse shaded by a giant hornbeam. At the base of the hornbeam you meet the kindly face of Saint Fiacre with an ivy appropriately curled to his cheek.

If you follow his eyes you are gifted to the breathtaking dancing fountains.

They arch from side to side dancing rain onto the water plants below.

We had a fab couple of hours and I’d love to go back in different seasons.
