A beautiful garden which is worth walking to. It is being restored at the moment. Of most interest is a huge 400 year old tree which has a very thick and gnarled trunk with lots of crevices. People leave little 'love notes' in the crevices....More

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.

However, the older part of the garden was inaccessible, and was disappointed. It was free to enter, but needs a huge amount of work to be done on it. Loads of weeding, pruning and tidying up needs to be done. Seen much better gardens.

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

I'm sure I saw a French couple with a little dog inside, but you should be able to email to ask.
