Interesting layout reflecting centuries of development of this ancienty garden. amazing bamboos and lillies and an interesting orangery and cactus house. Could benefit from a cafe or kiosk offering drinks and light snacks to complete the enjoyment of these free

Lovely place, beautiful garden where you can find some peace and quiet. Lots of cats as well! All the herbs, flowers and trees have signs and there's a big greenhouse with cacti as well.

Suggested by the tourism office, we went there expecting something... else let's say. It's rather small and unimpressive.

Given that it is free to walk around I won't be too critical but these gardens really need some serious renovation work. Nice cat though!

Large historical garden, with a huge number of plants, bushes, flowers and trees. Greenhouses. Relaxing break in the shadow.

This garden has such potential and is quite fascinating, however, we found it to be fairly unpleasant and overgrown! I think it needs a bit of love and upkeep personally... Good if you need some shade from the heat, but make sure you take in...More
