Everything in the garden is lovely…

We British famously love our gardens – but we definitely appreciate French ones too. So we are delighted that Leggett Immobilier will be the proud sponsor of Open Gardens, a fabulous event when green-fingered home owners open their gates to the public.


Jardins Ouverts is an event that is now in its fourth year, and the concept has quickly taken root across the country and hundreds of events have raised many thousands of euros for the children’s cancer charity “A Chacun Son Everest”. The association – that encourages people to open their gardens for a small charge – is run by volunteers and Leggett is delighted to now be funding the administration expenses including a redesign of their website www.opengardens.eu. There are many gardens to visit across France throughout the year.

We are thrilled to support this worthwhile cause and to have so much fun whilst doing so. Gardens and outdoor life is such a central part of life in France – we know only too well that British property hunters nearly always request a home with a garden.
