The Gardens of Lornay

The magic of bamboo in Savoy ... a stone's throw from the "Secret Gardens" of Vaulx, classified as "Remarkable Garden", and between the lakes of Annecy and Bourget, Denis, passionate gardener, has assembled in Lornay the largest collection bamboo from the region ...

Denis Duperthuy, gardener one of the finest French connoisseurs of this plant, has gathered in Lornay more than 90 rare bamboo species, all hardy, forming a conservatory of mountain bamboos and ornamental grasses unique to the scale of the French Alps. A botanical curiosity to discover during a free educational stroll - or commented by their creator - on nearly 1,5 hectares of romantic gardens on the terrace on the Fier.
