a keen artistic sensibility. I have already adverted to the fact that the exigencies ofthe site determined a narrow house, very much longer thanwide. The entrance doorway leads into a small vestibule,flanked on one side by a lavatory and on the other by acloset. Immediately beyond is the hall, occupying almostthe center of the house, and extending through to the ter- I he arrangement of the second floor is equally simple.The owners bedroom and boudoir are in the center on theterrace front, the boudoir and chief bedroom being lightedby the bay windows which are thrown out below the centralgables. At the extreme end, over the library, are two guest-rooms. On the right of the central hall is a seain^-roo-nand study, and the remainder of the space is filled with bath-rooms, of which there are three, and rooms for the servants. The spacious hall into which the visitor is ushered im-mediately from the vestibule, is a beautiful and cheerfulapartment. The woodwork is walnut, the walls covered

On the terrace front the hallgives upon a porch and a sun room, both of which imme-diately adjoin the terrace. The stairs are built against theentrance wall, as the large, round, arched window has pre-viously hinted. Beyond, to the left, is the library, occupyingthe whole of the further end of the house, and at the endof which is the capacious chimney which is so marked a fea-ture of the exterior.

Chateau de Miromesnil and its Walled Kitchen Garden, Normandy – September, 2017
Image by UGArdener
"Between the beaches of Dieppe and the land of the Pays de Caux, Miromesnil is a peaceful sanctuary for those awaiting bliss and calm. Rich in its literature and vegetation heritage, Miromesnil aspires dream and relaxation. Throughout the year, Miromesnil hosts various events. The castle’s elegant bed & breakfast and the charming cottages offer guests a friendly and authentic stay. Miromesnil was the birthplace of author Guy de Maupassant. Miromesnil owners, Jean-Christophe et Nathalie Romatet invite you to share their passion and discover this historical monument, its beautiful flower and vegetable garden, a true treasure of French heritage.
Alongside the castle, the vegetable garden (restored by the Countess de Vogüé, grand-mother of the current owners) remains true to its original role: livelyhood and enjoyment.
Separated by grass, each squared patch of vegetables, fresh or dried flowers contrasts sharply with the surrounding edges composed by abundant annuals, bulbs and long-lasting plants. This creates a colourful balance, which varies according to the seasons…
Built in 1590 on the remnants of an old fortified castle destroyed during the Battle of Arques, the Miromesnil castle is the testimony of four centuries of architectural history. The simple lines of the Henry IV style south façade contrast with the decorative abundance of the Louis XIII imposing north facade. Despite the succession of numerous landlords, the castle has kept its decorative aspects from the past centuries such as wooden panels from the 17th and 18th century, wrought ironwork and crown mouldings from the 19th century. The furniture (sofas, chest of drawers, wardrobes) portrays life in the castle in the 18th century. On the ground floor of one of the towers, a small room has been revamped to a 19th century style lounge, to remind visitors of the presence of the Maupassant family between 1849 and 1853.
The park is surrounded by 17th century brick walls, which protect fruit trees, rosebushes, magnolia and peonies. A 200-year old Lebanese cedar tree overlooks the park. The peculiar way the turf is trimmed reminds us of French formal gardens and their desire to thrill and overcome order over disorganisation
A beech grove, distinctive of the Pays de Caux surrounds the park. True to its 18th century design, the beech grove opens up to a vast overview. The beech grove is a historical landmark and counts about 3,000 beeches, some of them peaking at 40 meters."
