Jar dins de Colette

A pleasant way to spend an hour or so, longer if you attempt the maze. Friendly staff and an interesting history of Collete

Wander round and look at plants and shrubs. Personally? I'd rather wander round the abundant woodland of Correze and see what's real for free. :-)

You cannot fault the dedication and enthusiasm of the staff here. I first came in 2007 just after the gardens had opened, and it was very pleasant and relaxing then. Since that visit, the garden itself has developed, and now puts on an interesting display that makes it a relaxing place to visit.

These gardens are new, but even in their young state are impressive and pleasant.
