Arboretum Park of Le Tuffeau

Saint Gervais de Vic - Sarthe (72) - Pays-de-la-Loire - France

Arboretum Park of Le Tuffeau : Our arboretum is home to 200 species of trees and shrubs from all five continents. Our goal was to create a family-friendly promenade: fresh, full of flowers and perfumes and with contrasting ambiances. Painters will love the magic of the colours. Children will be delighted to surprise deer, pheasants and squirrels. Bees, dragonflies and birds are frequent and numerous visitors. Botanists and entomologists will find rare species. Mycologists will be able to identify a bounty of mushrooms.
We organize visits according to the seasons: flowers, seeds, colors of leaves.
Children and adults alike will have fun with perfume treasure hunts and games of recognition of leaves, needles and seeds. Created in : 2010
