Chateau de l’Arboretum de Balaine – Auvergne

The Arboretum de Balaine (20 hectares – 49 acres) was created in 1804 by Aglaia Adanson, daughter of naturalist Michel Adanson, as an English-style park on surrounding a mansion inherited her father. She formed an arboretum of exotic species, following the example of Joséphine de Beauharnais at the Château de Malmaison in Rueil. Chateau de l'Arboretum de Balaine ~ AuvergneOriginal Source: Flickr
