Great place to walk or just sit. Panoramic views across the plain below to Mont St.Michel. Plenty of places to eat your sandwiches at lunch time. Lots of garden 'rooms' with different themes.

Nice place for walks and enjoying the flowerbeds, there is small playground for children even. Next to the park is the church Église Notre-Dame-des-Champs, which is known for some engravings. But the park of course is interesting not because of this fact. We, and not...More
