Le jardin de Saint Adrien
These are private gardens built in a disused stone quarry, that are opened up to the public on weekends. Various events are held, including music concerts, with horses dancing to the music in a shallow lake . One of the most popular events is the Venetian weekend, when models wearing venetian costume walk through the gardens, and pose for the amateur photographers amongst us to photograph them in this beautiful natural setting. There is amply parking facilities and there is the possibility to snack on site. Entrance is by way of a small fee.. (comment from Trip Advisor)
