The gardens offer the visitor a unique and poetic stroll through literature and botany, presented through a series of six landscaped settings that reflect the six main regions that marked the life and writings of this remarkable, and often audacious, woman.
In each garden there are information panels presenting information about their relevance to Colette's life, and presenting short extracts from her books, from which the landscape architects drew inspiration.
For those with time to spare, and hour can be invested in a 5,000m2 labyrinth, ideal for children (while parents enjoy a coffee in the visitor centre!). Guided tours are available (1 hour) and offer floral and literary anecdotes to create a unique experience.
