Overview

As you enter this unique world you will be struck by the immensity around you. Between natural light and shape, sequoias and giant bamboos rise majestically to form a royal alleyway. Nature becomes a cathedral, with a towering 40m oak and 35m magnolia; the valley is so vast that even a dozy dragon could take a nap in the refreshing shade of the gingko tree. The ideal place to dream, to relax, to reflect, to play ant to revel in the joys of discovery... lose all sense of time and lose youself in another world, in the heart of the Cevennes. Over 1,000 varieties of remarkable, rare flowers, trees and plants create an exuberant decor where visitors wander in enchantment throught the Zen gardens, Victoria greenhouses, mysterious labyrinth... inhaling precious perfumes and enjoying scenes from Asia or America, showns and artistic performances. Unique in Europe, dating back to the 19th century, and listed as one of France's most beautiful gardens, the Bambouseraie is a monumental naural experience, sure to open both the eyes and hearts of spellbound visitors.

We stopped off on the steam train ride from Anduze, as part of a planned day out (got back on the train afterwards - seperate review of that). This is an arboretum for bamboo (though it's a grass, not a tree) and it has other...More

Though this is a relatively small park in size, it's really well setup. The lush surroundings are a delight on hot days. Both informative and enjoyable, I'd recommend

Our landscape architect friends were thrilled as this park has fantastic bamboo, pond-lily-water-garden area, and a huge Cornus controversa (don't see them a lot in North America). 10 Euro for a walk around, has a few 'games' in a kid area (ring toss, net climb...More

A bamboo forest sounds like a forest where one can freely walk into, isn’t it? Not true here. Truth or dare? A family with two children of say, 12 and 13, or even 18 and 19, is still a family isn’t it? Not true here....More
