Welcome to the Domaine de Poulaines

At the heart of a 25-hectare wood, the Domaine de Poulaines boasts landscaped gardens and an arboretum consisting of over 1200 plants spread over 4.5 hectares. Framed by 100-year-old trees and boxwood sits the manor house originally constructed during the Renaissance then extended in the 18th and 19th centuries. The gardens are open from April to October and all year round for group bookings. The Domain is also open for guests of its two holiday houses in all seasons. The site is available for event hire. Our boutique features beautifully crafted objects tailor-made for the Domaine de Poulaines by artisans. In our tearoom you can treat yourself to apple juice from the Domain and homemade patisseries with produce from our kitchen garden.

The Gardens and Arboretum de Poulaines received the National accreditation: Jardin Remarquable in 2014.




Take a stroll through the rose garden, along the waterside walk amid the iris and lavender, down paths lined by stoic perennials and beneath arches garnished plucky climbers.s.

Follow the banks of the brook into the landscaped garden full of rare plant varieties, on through the bamboo grove to the clear spring where the Koi carp swim and lose yourself in the arboretum with 300 labelled trees.

From season to season the gardens are awash with different subtle perfumes: lilac, English rose, mint and other aromatics.

The needs of our younger visitors are fully catered for, with a children’s playground and our friendly pets.

At the heart of the jardins de Poulaines nestle two luxurious holiday homes that can accommodate up to 10 guests.

La Route des Iris: the Domaine de Poulaines works with other parks & gardens in the Centre-Val de Loire region to showcase a diverse collection of irises crowding the verdant paradise.
