I loved every minute of the few hours I spent in the Parc Floral, Apremont-sur-Allier, and want to continue the enjoyment.

The Castle dates from the 12C and originally had twelve towers, of which five remain.

The Parc was created out of fields and a disused quarry – Apremont was a mining village. The fields now add to the magical quality of the views.
