The garden of Chateau Rivau is composed of 12 different gardens inspired by legends of the middle ages. A pleasant walk in the shadow of the Rivau Fortress will take you through the enchanted forest, the flowery meadow, the secret garden and Gargantua's kitchen garden. There is a collection of more than 300 ancient scented roses like the simple but beautiful rose "le chateau du Rivau" obtained by Andre Eve, an impressive collection of David Austin's roses and rare
plants of the middle ages (all labeled).
