    In August, do not hesitate to come at 10:30 at the opening because you will have fewer people and the morning light is splendid for phoyographier and enjoy the walk through this beautiful garden.

    Wonderful Japanese Garden (oriental-Yes, but especially Japanese). You can stay 4 hours without problem, the architecture is sublime, worked in the details. Part of the universal exhibition of 1900 is found in this beautiful garden that completes our knowledge, guided by signs. It was one of the best parks in France, and maybe even besides thanks to its originality.

    Beautiful discovery right next to Cholet. For a moment, we found ourselves at the Japan which reminded us of the good times spent in the land of the rising sun

    Pretty nice park, very chill atmosphere, not very authentic though and some places are a bit cliché but nice nonetheless. Tea was pretty good and varied. Dogs are allowed too.

    Great place to visit! (Combi-tickets available for visiting the garden of the chateau alongside the park)

    A great way to spend an afternoon. The gardens are beautiful. Tearoom very nice, offering very welcome drinks and snacks if you wanted them.
