You need at least a couple of hours to enjoy these beautiful grounds. Lots of slight in lines so not suitable for those who have physical,challenges but fine for wheelchair users. Also I would think quite boring for teenagers but young children will enjoy the expanse of grounds.

On a bright November afternoon, the autumn colours of the gardens are a magnet for photographers. Although there were lots of visitors, families included, the gardens did not lose their sense of peace. Walking around the lake, you can appreciate different aspects of the planting and design, but it was the smaller features that we found quite magical. Don't miss... More

Wonderful historic, formal Japanese Garden in the heart of the Pays de la Loire. If you have the opportunity to spend 2 - 4 hours here its an absolute must. Breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful.

While the gardens are hardly on a main tourist route in the Loire Valley, they are certainly worth making a detour to see. Fantastic oriental rather than Japanese gardens with wonderful sculpted trees, Khmer temple & footbridge, Pagoda, lake, ponds, streams and masses of oriental plants. Great photographic opportunities throughout the garden, with beautiful results. Separate bamboo garden and bonsai... More

The perfect place to find peace, quietness, very Zen place to be. If one has stress in their life and takes a walk in the park on a daily basis it will all be gone. I sometimes meditate and think of this place, puts me in a relaxed state of mind instantly. Absolutely amazing and beautiful place to experience

Our second visit to this wonderful park, and just like 2 years ago, we spent 2 hours wandering the paths along the lake, admiring the artistry of the gardeners who tend to the plants and trees. And afterwards we visited the shop / museum to see the bonzai trees, some of which are over 30 years old. A nice cool... More

Lovely day out. Fantastic range of plants and trees. We were staying at the chateau next door which that meant that we could get to our accommodation quickly after a full day.

We visited the Parc Oriental today. What a wonderful place to visit. Beautifully kept, lovely surroundings, gorgeous trees and flowers, very peaceful. You walk around the Parc and can read about its history and see and smell the delights. Once you have finished your walk you end up at a lovely Tea room with great staff. A must to visit.
