A beautiful garden in a beautiful village? There is better to define the garden of the 5 senses, a plant labyrinth located in the town of Yvoire in Haute-Savoie, at the foot of Lake Geneva. We will be closer to reality by speaking of it as a remarkable garden in the heart of a remarkable village classified among the most beautiful in France. The 5 senses garden also fits perfectly into the medieval spirit of the small city of Yvoire. Without being a strict reconstruction of a garden of the Middle Ages, it is inspired by what makes it the spirit, namely the mixture of vegetable and medicinal plants and the delimitation of spaces by means of plessis, wooden borders, vegetable hedges and palisades. Just like these gardens of ancient times, the garden of the 5 senses also invites to meditation through the rediscovery of the elementary sensations that are taste, sight, smell, touch and hearing. "Festina slowly" is the motto of the local gardeners. You now know in what frame of mind to start the visit.
