Botanical gardens

Instructive, bucolic, exotic or all these things at once... the Loire Valley's botanical gardens will guarantee you a richly rewarding experience. If it's trees you want, visit  the Arboretum des Grandes Bruyères or Terra Botanica where you can take a ride over the treetops in a flying nutshell... Within the peaceful confines of the Parc de Maulévrier, find a sense of serenity amidst pathways of shrubs trimmed in the Japanese style, and at Camifolia, learn about the virtues of plants... Last but not least, let yourself be charmed by the numerous flowers at the Parc Floral de La Source or by exotic greenhouses and plant sculptures in the Jardin des Plantes in Nantes!
