European Boxwood and Topiary Society Gardens of Calvados Tour

22 September 2022

4 days from £1,950pp

The Calvados region of Normandy has a varied terrain that stretches from the rugged Cotentin Peninsula, through the bocage, a rolling landscape of dense hedgerows and wooded valleys to the area’s celebrated and plentiful cider orchards. Again, we have selected a group of fine gardens, all with strong elements of topiary, and all of great contrast where we will meet owners and gardeners to learn about the art of topiary from a uniquely French perspective. Our tour is based at the four-star Best Western Moderne, conveniently located in the heart of historic Caen. The restaurants, where we will experience some of Normany’s gastronomic delights are Le Bistronome and Le Grande Bouteille.
