Les Jardins de Doris are open to school groups at an affordable price. A school visit to our gardens is both entertaining and educational.
1. Young people will learn how our three famous sundials work and will become acquainted with the history of our giant chess game. They will have the opportunity to observe the birds in our observation tower and imagining themselves at the controls of our pirate ship,
2. They will then be able to make a stop in the butterfly aviaries and discover how the pupae become butterflies.
3. The visit will continue to the houses of the three little pigs where your students will have fun reliving the story of some childhood tales while you go to admire our famous giant rockeries and their beautiful flowering plants.
4. Stop at the duck pond and fall under the spell of the cane and its little ducklings.
5. Remember to stop at the house of the goats. Your students will have fun feeding the goats and the sheep – absolutely free.
6. And then, why not visit the peacock house? Your youngsters will be amazed by their beautiful tails.
