The gardens of Sassy

Many French gardens are larger than Sassy's almost all are older but few are as "classical". The particular beauty of this garden lies in the terraces that immediately overlook it, as well as the orangery and lime trees that close the perspective. The site of Sassy expresses by its terraces to the Italian, drawn in trapeze, the control of a natural unevenness, due to the meeting of the Valley of Orne (and its tributary the Baize) and the hills of the Norman bocage.
