Les Jardins de Valloires are botanical gardens located on the grounds of the 18th century Abbaye de Valloires in Argoules. They are classified as a "Jardin Remarquable." The gardens' origins date to 1981 when gardener Jean-Louis Cousin began to look for a site for his collection of 3,000 plant varieties from north Asia and North America. They are organized into three major sections: French gardens to harmonize with the abbey's west façade, English gardens containing botanical collections organized into "islands," and a wilder naturalistic garden.

  • Lovely gardens in the grounds of a beautiful abbey. We visited in August, when the gardens were largely flowered out, before the onset of autumn, so probably not looking their best, but beautiful...

  • A great garden with something for everyone, families, older people. The gardens have different themes, all interesting. Stairs and ramps, a bit steep in places. We visited on a super summer day but plenty of shade and picnic areas.You can even buy a plant in the shop. There is a place to grab a bite to eat or drink and a gift /plant shop .
  • Beautiful and peaceful park I was surprised they have 2 charger for electric car. The restaurant it's nice and generally I got help from the employees for to book a table in the restaurant even speaking in English
