A family weekend in the heart of nature under the sign of the five senses

This year, our five senses will be awakened to celebrate the 21ste Rendez-vous aux jardins

In the program workshops and tours accompanied by professionals: gardeners, tour guides and even historians, all with a passion for gardens!

During the walk, they will tell us about their observations, experiences and emotions as they come into contact with this beautiful nature in effervescence thanks to the rain that has fallen.

And to take us further back in history and awaken our imaginations, we'll listen to them talk about the evolution of parks and gardens, tastes, colors and smells!

The Rendez-vous in the Gardens gives a whole new dimension to strolling and marvelling.

It's an ideal time to share with children, away from screens and in contact with simple, beautiful things.
