Park and Garden of the Château de Bosmelet
Route de Bosmelet, Auffay, 76720 AUFFAY / Pays de Caux
Located not far from Dieppe, close to Auffay, here is an impressive chateau, a beautiful example of Louis XIII architecture, set in the heart of the longest alley of three-hundred year-old lime trees in Europe. With its 2.5-acre park designed by the head gardener of Le Nôtre in Versailles, and its vegetable garden planted with many varieties of fruits, vegetables and flowers, this site is worth a detour. The tour includes a visit of Alain Germain's collections (costume designs, sculptures and painted backdrops) as well as remains from World War II.
The park was designed in 1715 by Colinet to integrate the Louis XIII period castle in the surrounding countryside. The vegetable garden mixes vegetables and flowers in a carefully mastered explosion of colours.
