The most disappointing attraction I have ever visited, basically a walk through woodland on man made tracks, with a guide. The water feature at the end was lovely but frankly not worth the entry fee, the rose garden was poorly kept and despite my roses...More

We decided to go for an after-lunch stroll through one of the Dordogne's beautiful gardens, and picked Les Jardins de L'imaginaire as 'it looked stunning on it's flyer'. So we drove down there and whilst paying for our entry ticket we found out they only...More

I don't make a habit of writing reviews unless I think I can add something to help fellow travellers. We came here to visit on a lovely sunny day hoping to wander round some pleasant gardens. We arrived at 11.30 to be told that it...More

This is a French garden designed to stimulate the imagination so do not expect to find an English styled garden bursting with colour. Sadly it is not really suitable for wheelchair users unless the pusher is Superman/woman. A guide takes you around in a group...More

The widly advertised garden is an Event, was designed by an american landscaper and is supposed to spur your imaginations. Unfortunately, one can only visit the garden with a guide, which spoils the fun of wandering and lingering, imagening. The guide introduces the guests to...More

For those used to the spectacular of the Chelsea Flower Show these gardens are best avoided. To fire your imagination you have to go with an enthusiastic guide: "what do you think that band of metal weaving through the trees is?" The water features are...More

I walked on my own through the gardens because the others had headphones. It was a nice garden, but not many flowers in the summertime. That's a pity. But beautiful views over Terrasson. It's a nice town. The waterballet was great. I enjoyed also the...More
