The park and gardens of the Château of La Bourdaisière

Situated on the banks of the Loire, the Château of La Bourdaisière  is surrounded by a large park, where the real star of the show is the tomato. Prince Louis-Albert de Broglie even dedicated a conservatory to this humble fruit!
 

Tomatoes, tomatoes and more tomatoes...


Here, this plant comes in all shapes and sizes, with names such as Ten Fingers of Naples, Iraqi Red, Erika from Australia and Nebraska Wedding. They may be round, elongated or heart-shaped, black, green, yellow or even purple! Discover this unique collection containing more than 630 varieties, and taste all flavours of the surprisingly rich fruit in the Bar à Tomates®, where you can savour delicious juices, sorbets and other original recipes. Every September, the Festival de la Tomate et des Saveurs (Festival of the Tomato and Flavours) puts this star-fruit in the spotlight.


An extraordinary range of colours


A little further on the Dalhia Color contemporary garden contains over 220 varieties of dahlias. Organised into different beds, more than 5,000 tubers bloom from summer to autumn in a fine palette of colours.
 

An educational and entertaining stroll


As you walk through the large park with its remarkable trees (sequoias, Monterey cypress etc.) you will also discover the famous Deyrolle prints used for teaching generations of French schoolchildren studying botany, zoology or geography.
