The Garden of Saint-Adrien

Imagine yourself in a haven of peace, a park, an oasis that invites visitors to escape and to suspend time. An extraordinary exotic garden created in an old quarry, where plants coexist with volcanic rocks. No, it is not necessary to go to the meeting or to Polynesia to experience this. Just take your car during your stay by the sea at high end camping Les Mimosas in Herault, and drive twenty minutes to get to the Garden of Saint-Adrien.

A fabulous garden with many rewards

The Association of Journalists of gardens and gardening are included in their top 5 parks in France in 2003. It has been described as "unavoidable garden" by the prestigious Lonely Planet travel guide in 2009 and "remarkable garden "by the Ministry of Culture. He was named "favorite garden of the French" in 2013. It is one of the Languedoc exceptional sites. He received in 2013 the price Bonpland presented by National Horticultural Society of France, and Certificate of Excellence TripAdvisor 2015.

With such a result, expectations are high. And it does not disappoint, quite the contrary. Located Servian in Herault, about 20 km north of the campsite Les Mimosas, the garden of Saint-Adrien is one of the most beautiful natural sites of Occitan. Set in a green and flowery park where the odor bouquets from free flowers succeed, it seduces nature lovers of all ages. The route of this very well designed landscaped garden has several areas (four water bodies), and a myriad of plant species including a beautiful rose bush.

In fine weather, the garden of Saint-Adrien is dressed in its most beautiful colors and bushes are reflected in the calm waters of the ponds. This show alone is worth the visit. Change of scenery!
