  • Very nice garden for this small village even in the fall. Games for children, pools, open-air theatre, beautiful Japanese Pavilion

  • Wonderful must-see gardens. Nature and all the differences of animal or plant species are great to see.

  • The gardens were much more neglected this year than last. Access is now via some back entrance rather than the main entrance. Not sure what is happening here, I hope that the decline does not continue  more »

  • A peaceful park but such a pity it is no longer tended and looked after carefully. The children's playground and picnic benches are great but I miss the flowers and plants which used to be looked after so well.
  • This is a hidden treasure!
  • Lovely and little frequented the day of my visit in August. It's a garden nor more or less with a few animals and games for children. Some mystery passages. The place gives the impression of having been abandoned but taken up again. Prefer can be spring.

  • A nice surprise. We visited this place quite by chance and detours of the paths we went to discovery. Peaceful place. Pity that some parts are a bit neglected and meriteraient to be better maintained.

  • This garden is of olfacties as the name. Shop more, almost no flowers. A park for children that's what it became. Very disappointed! I didn't go last year, but before there was a course arrow with a sense of visits and tons of flowers, scents. Nothing more!
