Garden Visit

The Spectacular Floralies Internationales in Nantes is only every 4 years, and this is the year, 17th-26th May. Not to be missed!


It is the biggest international Flower/Horticultural show in France. There is a coach company in St Hilaire doing a trip;- Gandon Evasion, where you can book tickets to go to the show.

On certain nights there is an evening firework display and the coach trip stays late for this.

Details can be found on the official site of the event and by contacting Gandon Evasion for details of the coach trip.

We are going but prefer to find a hotel and stay over, It’ll be worth it! Enjoy!
