Welcome to Hell, Purgatory and Paradise !

Less than half an hour from Monet's gardens in Giverny, the gardens of Chateau de Miserey are well worth a visit.

After they retired, its owners undertook a huge task. They imagined a garden symbolizing Hell and Paradise.

Hell of Miserey garden
visite guidée du jardin de Miserey Interpreted as a garden, it became a collection of rare plants unique in Europe.

The map of the garden represents a cross. Hell features all that can prick, pin and sting or itch.  

Madame de Roumilly will guide you through her garden and tell a story about each plant. They come from all over the world, as long as they can resist some frost. Don't stand too close...

After visiting Hell, you will pass through Purgatory, an alley of yews and roses-some smell of apple!-and you will arrive into the Garden of Eden.

It is the domain of thornless roses, of the sweetest smells, of white flowers.

As we are in Heaven, the Snake is here, in the form of a shaped box tree surrounded with poppies, tobaccos and marigolds, whose french name means "worries".
