Our Anglo-Italian inspired gardens symbolise that Château de l'Hestrange is halfway between London and Rome

At an altitude of over 500m, the estate is spread over 10 hectares of land, vines and forest. The main difficulty is that the land is sloped, and although this gives us impressive views across the Saône Valley, it adds an extra difficulty as designing the gardens must also include careful consideration of the topography of the land. 

Since 2007, Laurent Metge-Toppin has channeled his passion for landscaping in order to develop the gardens which had been left unattended for more than 30 years. He has redrawn the main axes in the gardens, blending the classical Italian style with the more picturesque and romantic style of English gardens.
