Once upon a time, on Breton soil, a fortified castle built overhanging an estuary to monitor its entrance. A few wars and hundreds of years later, a storm clears the entire surrounding forest. Because in all things, misfortune is good, it is then that the idea of ​​creating a park on the seventy hectares of the domain is born. The forest felled by the hurricane made it possible to regain the long hidden view of the small coastal river of the Trieux, offering to the domain a landscape which opens beyond the landed property. In this setting marked by the strength of granite and by the omnipresent water, all that remained was to imagine the ways to enhance the great diversity of environments and landscapes of the place. It is the landscape architect Bertrand Paulet who tackles this mission, creating in turn a medieval vegetable garden, a pleasure garden, wooded and hedged areas, a palm grove, rose gardens, an alley of camellias… All these spaces are the subject of eco-management that promotes biodiversity within the domain. The park has also become a place for scenic and artistic expression, as well as support for educational activities and nature workshops. Today the wind is blowing towards the West, so let us go to the beautiful lands of La Roche Jagu…
