  • While the price of entry cooled some but €11 for almost 2 hours of walk among not 1 garden but gardens in a huge park. It's magic to an atmosphere to another even if in March, is not "explosion" floral. It makes want to return between April and June. And for that price you can get out when we want, take time to stroll, even if the case is closed. Only regret there is not possibility to buy some plants...

  • What a magnificent place, so intensely beautiful and in today's hectic world the perfect way to reconnect with nature. The welcome is delightful from the owners and staff. The house is incredible and fits beautifully into the surrounds. I will definitely be back soon!
  • Le Bois des Moutiers was simply the highlight of our stay in Normandy! The most stunning garden we've ever seen and everyone was extremely friendly and genuinely passionate about what they do! We honestly can't wait to visit again! -Joanna and Dylan
  • Wonderful place, absolutely unique. This very romantic place is a "must see" if you ever travel in the region of Dieppe. The owners are very kind and helpful.
  • Never mind Monet and the famous cliff-side church (albeit stunning in their own right). The jewel in the crown of the beautiful Normandy village of Varengeville-sur-Mer has to be the magical "Bois des Moutiers" park, where wondrous trees & shrubs of all sizes and shapes seemingly blend into the surrounding seascape and sky. One almost expects fairies and elves to pop out of under the greenery except that in reality it is the warm welcome of the owners that makes the whole experience so exceptional. An absolute must for children and adults who secretly wish that Never Neverland really exists...
  • Nice garden with a view
