Les Jardins Tranquilles: Features & Facilities

The 10 acres of Les Jardins Tranquilles house a myriad of features just waiting to be discovered. The mixture of formal and natural gardens, framed and bordered by the magnificent River Dronne, is something to which many of our visitors return regularly.

We have 400 metres of river frontage with sloping lawns down to a small island approached by two bridges that pass over the Dronne. You can sit in numerous private areas and watch the river with its abundant wildlife pass gently by.

Bring your picnic and enjoy eating "en plein air" and relaxing in one of the many charming areas of your choice. Several tables and chairs are provided for this purpose throughout the gardens. We also have a croquet set that is situated on the main lawn for you to enjoy.

Upon entering the gardens, you are first greeted by the magnificent Italian Garden. Well-maintained hedges hide recessed seating areas, fountains and even a 'chess-board'. These are followed by the Japanese garden, whose beautiful pond is covered with many plants and lilies. The gentle sound of trickling of water is all around you.

A large, open lawn bordered by flower beds and exotic trees leads you further on in to Les Jardins, where two bridges lead you to the island.

A Visitor's Comments...

Here's some lovely feedback we received from a previous visitor from Scotland to Les Jardins Tranquilles, who runs a gardening blog.

"These gardens have a most serene ambience. They're a collection of the most wonderful shrubs and trees, statues and water features, all incorporated seamlessly.

It is enough to just stand looking up the sweeping lawn or to sit on the little island, drinking up the peace and tranquillity, but there is much more to this garden".
