Unveiling the intriguing history

In the 17th century, a manuscript circulated in Anduze, detailing a luxurious garden nestled in Tornac, described as "made up of evergreen trees." This garden was the brainchild of the Marquis of Tornac, who constructed a second castle in the plain solely dedicated to pleasure. However, as the saying goes, "the essential thing is not in the building; it is in the garden." This narrative dates back to 1685. Despite the transformations since the wars of religion, La Bruguière still echoes the memory of its splendid past. Evidence of an underground passage, a basin collecting spring water, and a water circuit supplying the fabulous garden endows it with a timeless charm, hence why locals fondly refer to it as the "castle."

A classified park with an organic swimming pool

Spanning three hectares, the park captivates with its ever-changing beauty throughout the seasons. On fair days, it reveals a hidden gem: a large natural pool overlooking the foothills of the Cévennes and perched hamlets. This seventeen-meter-long biological swimming pool, free from chemical treatment, boasts exceptional water quality, sustained by perpetual movement, natural filtration, and oxygenation by aquatic plants. It embodies the pure, living waters akin to the rivers of the Cévennes.


Preserving the verdant landscape while respecting its delicate "natural and compound disorder" resonates deeply with our mission. We embrace water recovery and recycling initiatives while methodically rehabilitating the park with drought-resistant plants, ensuring sustainability for generations to come.
