The Cloister with music
The Cloister to the rythm of the seasons
The rose that clothes the side of the house is ‘Mme Alfred Carrière’, whose perfume fills the cloister. During the summer pots of pelargoniums are stood around the cloister. William Christie has a large collection of these South African plants that were also popular with gardeners when they first arrived in Europe during the 1630s.
