The Bamboo Forest in the Cévennes

Leave your watch behind and relax in the bamboo forest. In our era that's always in a hurry, where we get lost trying to get it all done, the Bambouseraie is a different kind of place, unique in Europe since the 1800's. A magical getaway.

Here, time takes the time to catch its breath. Among a thousand and one varieties of bamboo, rare flowers, trees and remarkable plants, an unexpected landscape thrives in the Cevennes mountains in County Gard. Ranked among the most beautiful gardens in France, the Bambouseraie en Cévennes is a one-way ticket to a return to inner peace.

Games, discoveries, fun … here children learn nature in a new way. Strolling, and dreaming, all ages refresh their spirit. The Bambouseraie en Cévennes is another world, where you are free to disconnect and reconnect to the essential, free to breathe deep and get inspiration, free to raise your eyes and rest your head…

Raise your gaze indeed, for it is on high that the Bambouseraie en Cévennes has prepared a surprise visitors in 2019. An extraordinary aerial walk that takes you on top of the majestic bamboo trees, with amazing views.
Take to the heights … to do yourself good!

Open 25 February to 15 November.
