Le Bois des Moutiers: French Arts & Crafts
Christopher Barley

Le Bois des Moutiers. An unusual architectural and horticultural gem in Normandy. Unusual, because the house, which has been owned by four generations of the Mallett family, was extensively redesigned by Edward Lutyens (the English architect) and partnered by Gertrude Jekyll who modelled the gardens (her only foray into a continental garden) culminating in both a series of walled rooms and an extensive English landscape park.
