The 'Oliveraie' of La Mouissone is spread over three hectares of the hill slopes below le Bois de la Marbière, to the east of Grasse.

  • We were delighted today to welcome Luc Noel and his film crew of Belgian TVs ‘Jardins et Loisirs’. They are visiting the region to cover the forthcoming Festival des Jardins de la Côte d’Azur. A very long day for them leaving home before dawn and filming until dusk. A lovely interlude with our gardens holding up quite well in this unusual spring drought.

  • If you take a close look at the ivy on our drystone wall, you can observe three layers - top: new growth; middle: mature growth; lower: clipped back by the deer which have taken residence in the garden😱

  • It’s an extra good year for violet flowers this year. They are cultivated at nearby Tourrettes sûr Loup for the perfume industry where the leaves are used in perfumery. The flowers are crystallised too. We have thousands growing every where in our gardens. How lucky!

  • This Echium fastuosum self seeded in the patch outside our kitchen door. We are waiting to see if the flowers will be blue or white. We had a lovely white one nearby but it sadly bit the dust in last year’s big freeze
