These gardens are known as one of the "MOST BEAUTIFUL IN FRANCE."

As I enjoy seeing different gardens around the World, and this one looked pretty good on their website, a visit was a must!

We went to Salignac, and drove to the Gardens from here. I did take us a little while to find the sign post, not the easiest to see!
Along a country road we went, enjoying the sights of good farmland and field's of red Poppies.
We kept on wondering if we were on the correct road, and as it turned out, we were.
The Garden is located at the end of a '"no through road."

There was a huge Car park, so parking wasn't a problem, and we noticed picnic tables scattered about under the Tree's, that was good, as we had brought our Thermos with us for morning tea, which ended up Lunch!

Walking into the entrance area, we noticed straight away how well kept it was, the Lawn's were dark green and lush, there was a nice looking Restaurant, a Rotunda to sit and enjoy the far reaching view, plus the Entrance/Gift shop. All of these can be accessed without going into the gardens.

It wasn't the cheapest, prices being in 2011........
