“Tres bon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We visited the gardens in August 2012 and we thoroughly enjoyed oursleves. The orchid house was spectacular, I've never seen so many beautiful specimens. The butterflies were also flitting around the orchid house, very pretty and you were able to get up close. The gardens were all well maintained and a pleasure to stroll around. I loved the Tuscan garden and further along we spotted a very English red telephone box, made our day. Thank you for a lovely day out. Keep up the good work!

“Poor experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I have seen much nicer gardens. Not very attractive and expensive. It looks like a garden made only for getting EU money for.

“DISAPPOINTING”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We called at Tourist Info in Royan and were recommended to visit these gardens. We paid 10 euros each admission and were very disappointed. Although the entrance hall was impressive, the majority of the shop space within was empty. The gardens were not well tended and I certainly wouldn't recommend it.

“Leaves a lot to be desired.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

Sadly like many places in France of this type funding seems to be disappearing fast. The gardens are full and dead and not well look after. If you come over from England you will be disappointed,as the gardens you left behind are far nicer!

“Horticultural Disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We went a couple of years ago and were quite pleased. Like most things of this nature in France certain parts were not up to scratch. The English garden left a lot to be desired. The Bonsai garden was superb. We went again this year, with some friends from England, it is an hour and a half's drive from our home, only to discover from the tourist office that it closed in December and nobody knew when it would open. This despite the website sayin they were open. C'est la vie en Farnce!
