Le Pavillon de Galon with its landscape lapping at the foot of the Luberon has a magnificent garden of four hectares brimming with vineyards, fig and cherry trees, lavender and more. It has become the flagship garden of Vaucluse. From here it is possible to see the steeple of the church of Cucuron one kilometer away. The garden is close to the well-known Provençal village which winds in on itself with its maze of narrow streets, while seeming so distant, it’s almost another world!

Huge garden around an Italianate château. Pools, a 19th century box avenue and the tallest plane trees in France (26m). It was in this park that the Marquis of Brantes made the first ever hot-air balloon flight in 1789.

The Majolan Park is one of my favorite places in the outskirts of Bordeaux. Created between 1870 – 1880, this stunning park was once a swamp.

The Majolan Park is one of my favorite places in the outskirts of Bordeaux. Created between 1870 – 1880, this stunning park was once a swamp. After the reconstruction began, the 20 hectares of the swamp was remade into a lake, an artificial cave, fountains, waterfalls, bridges and flower gardens. The place is honestly one of the most beautiful things ever. It has a small castle in the center. Quiet, secluded walking paths, with romantic wooden or iron bridges. The caves are so amusing to explore as well, even though they are artificial.

Do you love big, open spaces? Do you like old trees, forests and wild nature? Then maybe, this less known park, hidden in the Merignac district of Bordeaux is right up your alley.

Do you love big, open spaces? Do you like old trees, forests and wild nature? Then maybe, this less known park, hidden in the Merignac district of Bordeaux is right up your alley. Park Feau is not one of the typical parks around the city with straight, pretty gardens, made up with colorful flowers. It is mostly constructed by greenery, swamps and big trees and that is exactly what I love about it. I couple of minutes walk from the Lycee des Merignac – Tram A stop and you have a forest inside the city. Maybe not the best place for children (though there is a children’s playground) but it is perfect for a run or a walk with your pet. Plus its open all the time.

Located in Caudéran is the largest park in Bordeaux – Parc Bordelais. If you have kids, this is the place you should take them and here is why. The park has not only the typical beautiful greenery and flowers, there is also an animal farm where the little ones could have the pleasure of petting a goat or a pig. Ducks, wild ducks, geese, swans and water hens and fluffy rabbits run freely around the little lake in the center of the park. There are swings, go-kart, a children’s theater. A little café is hidden between the trees for those moments when the parents need a pick me up.

Pay a visit to the Jardin Public, the most famous park in Bordeaux. Very close to the city center, it is the perfect place to organize a picnic, jog, or take a nap very close to the city. Those who don’t have time to prepare a picnic but still want to enjoy the view, go to l’Orangerie, the in-garden restaurant for breakfast or lunch while enjoying the spectacular view.
