The Water Gardens

Carsac-Aillac - Dordogne (24) - Nouvelle-Aquitaine - France

The Water Gardens, in the Perigord department in the Dordogne region, are dedicated to the lushness of lotus and exotic and tropical nympheas. The lotus flowers can rise up to 2 meters above the water. The lotus has its home in America, the Middle East and Asia, where it is a symbol of beauty and purity.
Above a basin of over 2800 m2 and on more than 550 meters of footbridges on water level, you will discover the water fauna and flora with the lotus flowers at breast hight. Thanks to a speciall app, dynamic water games and fountains can be manipulated in your own way.
