Whilst I was away a couple of weeks ago we were lucky enough to have some fabulous weather which enabled us to both enjoy the beach and swim even in mid-September but also enjoy 3 gardens in the area.
One we'd been to a few years back is the Parc de Trevarez which is just south of Chateauneuf de Faou or about half an hour due north of Concarneau - since our last visit we noticed a number of changes in the garden in particular - I think the photos speak for themselves....
The Park itself covers some 85 hectares so there are plenty of km of pathways through the more formal gardens nearer to the Chateau itself and over fields and through woodland areas for the more energetic!
One of the best bits for me are all the beautiful Japanese Acers and the beautiful wildflower area that they've planted up.
After wandering around and feeling thirsty we sat in the courtyard filled with a fountain and some beautiful planting enjoying a good cup of tea and homeade biscuits. They had a very good Spainish exhibition on at the time of our visit which unfortunately we didn't have much time to look at properly but they do seem to put on different exhibitions during the year so well worth checking out before visiting.
