The island of Versailles
Located less than 10 minutes walk from the Hotel Coeur de Loire, this artificial island of 1.7 hectares, created in 1831, has been transformed into a Japanese garden for the past 40 years.
The landscape, typical of the land of the rising sun, offers walkers superb variations that change with the seasons: rock gardens, waterfalls and exotic vegetation such as bamboo, bald cypress, rhododendron and Japanese cherry trees.
In the heart of the island, the Maison de l'Erdre hosts multiple exhibitions dedicated to the river and the aquatic environment.
Ideal during your romantic weekend or during your stay with family or friends, the island of Versailles is also the ideal starting point for a trip by electric boat or canoe.
