* "Give us, give us, gardens ..." *. Who has never hummed this verse by Pierre Perret? Give us gardens to do stupid things, but also and above all to play while discovering art and nature. In Vallon du Villaret, there is art in play, and there is play in art. Nature is everywhere: a magnificent undergrowth landscape crossed by a trout stream. Everywhere, funny sound, tactile, visual, mechanical or hydraulic inventions punctuate the visit. Through them, we learn to observe nature differently and to awaken its senses. We also learn about art by pushing the door of the Vallon tower which is an exhibition space dedicated to contemporary art. Whether you are alone or with your family, aged 2 or 72, the Vallon will enchant you! For 20 years, more than 700,000 visitors have already passed through the doors of this amazing garden located in the heart of the Cévennes. Now that the summer season begins, will you be there?

The garden of the Villaret valley


B.Gauthier Welcome to the land of sounds! This surprising earthen construction shelters an instrumentarium: sound bells, whistling birds, vocal resonators… as many instruments made in ceramic. We can browse and interact to create music and discover the sound of the earth.

Gauthier After having taken advantage of the fun and artistic events scattered in the heart of the valley, the curious can open the door of this 16th century tower, classified as a historic monument, to discover other works that require a little more attention. This exhibition space welcomes artists - young and old, known or less known - to whom it offers an astonishing field of expression.
