Reviews and comments on Chateau de Valmer


A pretty and unusual chateau with a traditional French potager. A host of unusual plants and vegetables, including a 20 m tunnel of unusual squashes and gourds. Lots of interesting and quaint architectural features.
Only disappointment is that the gardens are not wonderfully well maintained and some labels are missing or inaccurate. But well worth a visit for inspiration. Admission cost is only 8 euros.
