    This Montpellier folie overlooks terraces connected by stairs with French-style flowerbeds and ornamental boxwood. The 18th-century garden has been listed as a historical monument since 2000. Near the lake is an exceptional feature: a nymph grotto decorated with rocks and shells.

    The garden is open in June for the “Le Temps des Jardins” garden festival and on European heritage days. Group guided tours given by the Association Histoire et Patrimoine (History and Heritage Association).
