This region was strongly marked by the medicinal plants whose cultivation began in 1842. After the Roman chamomile, imported from Belgium and cultivated to fight against the phylloxera which attacks the vine, Anjou specializes in the cultivation of other plants such as peppermint, marigold, blueberries, Provins rose. Camifolia's garden traces the history of this sector while giving to see, to touch and to feel. Let your senses speak and follow us on this tour!
