The Georges Delaselle Garden, a small exotic world
On the Isle of Batz, the Georges Delasselle Garden takes you around the world. This garden was laid out in 1897 by Georges Delaselle, a Parisian businessman with a passion for exotic species that he planted over a period of 40 years. It gives pride of place to summer-flowering plants that remind you of faraway places. There are 2,000 species, representing all the continents, with plants from California, Australia, Chile or South Africa growing side by side with natives of other foreign lands. It’s definitely a change of scene!
