Just a really nice garden in general. Well tended, kept in excellent condition. It's not really a tourist hotspot and it's not something to centre the holiday around but it's certainly a nice thing to do on an afternoon.

Lovely place to spend time on a hot day. Very much English style in contrast to the formal Jardins du Mail, and with some interesting plants and trees. A relaxing spot to stroll and sit for a while.
