    as mentioned in almost all of the comments, this garden is beautiful, well maintained and has to ask a lot of work. This may be suitable for small children (-3 to 5 years) because there's the feeding of the fish, the forest of bamboo, the approach of small frogs,... a good time! A little small, maybe... to enlarge...

    Beautiful walk among the flowers of lotus in a restful and zen atmosphere. The garden is very well maintained and it is very nice to walk. The search for the frogs and fish becomes a game for children. As a bonus they can feed them for free at the end of the visit.

    It's a real pleasure for the eyes, very pleasant and relaxing walk in a natural site. Ideal for lovers of photos with these lovely flowers of lotus in many colours. Great view from the top of the gardens with small fountains of multicolored koi carp. Really very interesting and exotic, to do if we like the true nature.

    Being locals, we have visited this garden several times. Watching the business grow and develop into the utterly amazing place that it is now has been wonderful. The gardens are utterly gorgeous and the animal life - frogs, and spectacular fish - will delight any children. That said there is plenty for adult visitors to enjoy. The design is a joy and every corner has something to offer. A water gardens connoseur will not be disappointed. This is the work of experts with a passion. The lillies are amazing, the bridges are lovely and the secret bamboo rooms are cool and inspiring.

Where to stay in Sarlat-la-Caneda

Chances are good that if you stay in Sarlat-la-Caneda, you'll be housed in a historical building. Many hotels and other lodgings in this medieval capital are in old mansions and structures that have existed for many centuries. While the range of choices does include a few more modern hotels, most are beautiful family-owned spots where you might expect to eat meals with the owners. It's hard to go wrong in terms of location, but staying close to the historical center is best. Also, take note that hotels in this region tend to fill up quickly in the summer, so be sure to book before you arrive.
