  • Whether you like the English garden or rather contemporary landscape planning, this stop is worth a visit. According to the summer weeks, there are multitudes of flowers that are adapted to the microclimate of Métis. The emblem of instead the pretty blue poppy. The historical building is an exhibition hall and a restaurant. A quick stop at the cafe further down the field with a terrace is also possible. A good half-day weather is expected to make the full turn or less if time is short. The shop has beautiful local products.

  • Un excellent endroit à visiter. An excellent place to visit. The flowers and arragements are fantastic!
  • Spectacular garden with tons of flowers and a really interesting historical aspect to it. Well worth the visit if you're in the area.
  • Beautiful place. There's a lot to walk around and see. Cafeteria on site and boutique as well. The signature blue poppy is breath taking.
  • Pretty place to go if you like flowers, but if you are not a fan of plants, do not go.
  • Beautiful. One of the highlights in Gaspésie area. If you're there during design competition from landscape architecture firms make sure to see it too.
