PAIR YOUR VISIT WITH VALLOIRES ABBEY
The Gardens of Valloires open on a Cistercian Abbey founded in 1158. Destroyed over the centuries, it was rebuilt in the 18th century in a classical architecture that combines a Baroque decor.
A life size playground At Les Jardins de Valloires, children are kings, they can run on the big lawn, take the small path of the marsh garden or the spiral of the garden of evolution, hide behind the trees or in the wicker hut.
But especially your little pieces of cabbage will be able to make new experiences in the Garden of the 5 senses which is especially dedicated to them: to recognize the colors of the roses or peonies, to listen to the dance of the bamboos, to smell the perfume of the flowers, to touch the barks of trees or foliage, taste the forgotten fruits.
Life-size games Time for a treasure hunt, follow the knight Lamarck for a guided tour in which enigmas and activities follow one another. Other wooden games await children to challenge their balance or simply have fun.
