Practical information

This garden is a marvel of disorientation and intelligence with its labyrinths of mysterious paths, its alliances of colors and scents, its sets of subtle shadows and light which offer effects of extraordinary perspective. The visitor is a spectator and an actor of these learned and baroque sets with the nature. We are under the spell of this garden full of poetry. The Gardens of La Ballue are recognized as one of the most beautiful parks of France and are a fundamental testimony of the art history of the gardens of the 20th century. Throughout the season, numerous events are proposed to you. A rich musical programming in particular, with music concerts: baroque, classic or jazz. But also demonstrations of techniques of gardening and cultural events.
