As you enter this unique world you will be struck by the immensity around you. Between natural light and shape, sequoias and giant bamboos rise majestically to form a royal alleyway. Nature becomes a cathedral, with a towering 40m oak and 35m magnolia; the valley is so vast that even a dozy dragon could take a nap in the refreshing shade of the gingko tree. The ideal place to dream, to relax, to reflect, to play ant to revel in the joys of discovery... lose all sense of time and lose youself in another world, in the heart of the Cevennes. Over 1,000 varieties of remarkable, rare flowers, trees and plants create an exuberant decor where visitors wander in enchantment throught the Zen gardens, Victoria greenhouses, mysterious labyrinth... inhaling precious perfumes and enjoying scenes from Asia or America, showns and artistic performances. Unique in Europe, dating back to the 19th century, and listed as one of France's most beautiful gardens, the Bambouseraie is a monumental naural experience, sure to open both the eyes and hearts of spellbound visitors.

This was a really relaxing way to pass a couple of hours - what surprised me was how much our youngest (11) son enjoyed it, taking many photos. Great to combine with lunch in Anduze

This is a magnificent garden - we were lucky enough to visit on a beautiful sunny day, and although it was busy, it never felt crowded and we never felt rushed. Just stunning.

A long established large garden with more varieties of bamboo than you ever knew existed! PLUS beautiful water gardens, a bamboo maze, the stunning Dragon Valley – inspired by the Orient – and much more besides. A lovely cool place on a hot day.

We love plants, do the Bambouseraie was an ideal place as you get descriptions about a lot of them and they do have do uncommon species.
