The gardens are wonderful and with all the water features it is a very nice place to have a stroll in Terrasson during a hot summer day. In addition, the guides are very nice.

Designed by an artist to blend into its surroundings, this garden is well worth a visit. Note that it is by guided tours in French only but there are written guides in English. Reading other reviews I see that we were lucky in having an...More
