Acorus Aquatic Garden : In a valley by the edge of a forest, this 3 hectare garden has a special ambiance. Created in 1992, it invites for an encounter with nature. You will walk along water paths between the organic pool, lotus and nenuphar ponds, bucolic brooks and pools where a large collection of water plants blossom, source of life for the fauna.
A large plant diversity lives all around the water parts: bamboos, perennials, trees and shrubs that have been trimmed harmoniously in order to create numerous windows and perspectives upon the different spaces of the garden.
Numerous benches will invite you to stroll around and take your time to enjoy the tranquillity of the place. Created in : 1992
