Campagne de l'Hermitage

Hermitage Parc and the weeping willow

In this sublime park of understated elegance, there is a tree that is worth a visit all on its own. It is a weeping willow, situated some 50 metres south-west of the maison de maître, or manor house, that was planted when the park and outbuildings were laid out (1855-1857).

After crossing the lawn, you find yourself at the foot of the trunk of this surprising tree, whose branches, which trail on the ground through their sheer weight, gave birth to the offshoots or runners. It is undeniably the arboreal gem of this property, which includes many others and is also evident in the elegance of the manor house itself, its farm, its orangerie and its neo-Gothic dovecote in the extravagant style of a 19th century “folly”.
