Only 8km from Sarlat in Carsac-Aillac, there are gardens created in 1999 which feature a rare collection of aquatic plants on a Gallo-Roman site. Strolling along the pathways provides a visual splendor of colorful nature at its best, with benches placed at strategic places to relax in the shade and take in the tranquile setting – a lovely way to discover the area and enjoy a beautiful setting.
Not far from Exit #42 off the autoroute A8, there is a peaceful haven with a natural treasure! I met friends for lunch, following and found myself at a charming hotel with a terrace restaurant by the pool. This lovely, tranquile place is a perfect overnight or weekend getaway, without having to travel far from the city of Nice, not to mention charming and welcoming!
After lunch, I learned that they have horses on the grounds, as well as the largest area of Lotus flowers in the world! Being a former equestrian, off I went, to have a look and a nice walk, to enjoy nature, and to digest all the great food! What I found was a hidden treasure of breath-taking beauty!
