EACH YEAR IN MARCH, THE PLANT GARDEN WELCOMES PRIMAVERA, THE RARE PLANTS FESTIVAL
At the gates of Montpellier, from the end of the 17th century, the notables of Montpellier began to build houses outside the city just to splurge, in these houses in the leaves.
The term Folies was born (comes from the Latin Folia which means leaves)
The most beautiful gardens in Montpellier are a bit hidden ...
Thus, the follies are home to magnificent gardens.
To find them, you have to go to the Château de Flaugergues or the Château de la Mogère, whose formal gardens are absolutely magnificent: water buffet, ponds, sumptuous flowerbeds and landscaped parks ...
Here, bathed in charm and harmony, you can let go during a visit.
If you have time, stop by the gardens of the Haguenot hotel or the Domaine d'O park, a 23 hectare space where you can stroll through the Mediterranean gardens, the century-old pine forest or the olive grove ...
