  • If you are interested in gardens and parks they must plan several hours. The Garden Festival need 2 hours. The English park determines 1 hour. Then, they weren't even in the Castle and have also seen not modern art with respect to gardens. All bring so much time.

  • We have been at the Festival of gardens in September 2017, the fall colors made it even more beautiful. It's really exotic and especially beautiful. Gardens don't miss! We did not have time to visit the Castle, what we will do during the next visit. On the Goualoup, with its perennial gardens Park, it is to see also, for a pleasant walk. I don't post photos to let you the total discovery.
