Heritage & Troglodyte

Our most beautiful gardens

Strolling in a garden, calming down, recharging one's batteries... With the senses alert and the head at rest, the visitor enters a bubble of disconnection. Our gardens have a thousand colors and a thousand scents: whether you are looking to reconnect with biodiversity or admire the harmony sublimated by the hand of man, here is our selection of extraordinary gardens.

It's time to let the flower power take over.

Doué-en-Anjou, home of the rose

Did you know that almost half of French roses are grown in Doué-en-Anjou? This tradition inherited from the 18th century is still very much alive today.

While traveling through The Paths of the Rose, you will observe more than a thousand different varieties, in a deluge of scents and colors! In season, this vast park of English roses also offers many activities.

The Paths of the Rose

À land of rose, the rose garden and its course of fragrant roses reveal the secrets of the cultivation of the queen of flowers and the distillation of rose water.

The Gardens of Puygirault, the incredible vegetable garden

Plant and vegetable garden, the Puygirault Gardens take you on an educational, zen and surprising journey! Through 14 spaces, the walker traces the thread of the man-plant relationship. Wild plants, vegetables, fruits, aromatic and medicinal plants: nature is generous as long as we respect it.

The enhancement of biodiversity, the nourishing earth and the harmony that emanates from the place invite you to a gentle tranquility.


The Gardens of the manor of Châtelaison, from surprise to surprise

Around their recently restored 15th century Gothic mansion, the owners have given free rein to their passion for plants. To our delight, they imagined a garden-promenade with different atmospheres. We come across 30 remarkable points: sculpted hedges, fountain, waterfall, green room, cave, French garden... An unusual route with the scent of chlorophyll!
