Located in the village of La Sône on the banks of the Isere River, the Jardin des Fontaines Pétrifiantes is one of the most beautiful water gardens: a real little paradise. This garden features an element of the local natural heritage: the tuff. Resulting from the intense and continuous deposit of limestone on the plant elements of the site, this mineral factory offers an architecture quite exceptional. In this case of white rock, we discover an ingenious combination of many horticultural species and landscape creations planted in the middle of the white water cascades and cascades and slow waters of the basins and streams.
The great presence of these sources serves as a guide for the walk and makes the place magical. It is in this serene atmosphere of the murmur of water that we discover along the paths of the plants of the 5 continents. Thousands of flowers and shrubs punctuate the course in a harmonious way. Each year, curves and reliefs are redesigned and redesigned to give birth to new creations that make the originality of our garden.
