The floral park of Apremont-sur-Allier
There is no doubt that the Apremont-sur-Allier Floral Park’s close proximity to where the Loire and the Allier meet plays a key role in allowing for the architectural garden and the picturesque garden to come together.
The castle, the village, and the floral park of Apremont-sur-Allier: a continuous dialogue
The Apremont-sur-Allier Floral Park was designed in the 1970s by Gilles de Brissac, to start a dialogue between the village, the castle and the park. The floral park acts as a green extension of the charming village of Apremont-sur-Allier and, for the castle, it provides a gentle transition to the surrounding landscape. In return, the village and the castle participate as decorative features in the scenes that emerge as you explore the garden. This three-part design is reminiscent of the town-castle-garden concept created by André Le Nôtre for Versailles in the 17th century.
Though now perfectly integrated into its natural setting, the grounds of the Apremont-sur-Allier Floral Park nevertheless required profound remodelling to create vast green lawns and a waterfall, stepping away from shapeless terrains. After several years of work, the Floral Park opened its doors to the general public in 1977.
