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

These gardens, which are based on 5 areas of France where Colette lived are a delight. We didn't have time to try the labyrinth, but from a vantage point above it we could see that this is clearly a wonderful place to take children.

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. :-)

These gardens were created to pay homage to the French Writer Colette, it is a thematic garden and so it’s really different from a forest. The important point is that you are like Colette because you love nature. We are sorry to learn that you don’t appreciate the original concept of these gardens. Looking forward to seeing you again in... More

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.
