    From April 30 to September 17, the artist Jean-Claude Sadoine offers a narrated walk on the life and work of Arthur Rimbaud based on the sculptures he created. The place is magical and the visit fascinating. Combining erudition and theatricality, passion and pedagogy, humor and proximity, the life of Arthur Rimbaud is unfolded and illustrated by large declaimed extracts. A great and beautiful moment!

    A wonderful discovery... A successful marriage between literature and plastic art. Guided tour to discover Rimbaud through his works. I loved it and I recommend it.

    What a discovery this garden is where, in the middle of the rich vegetation, the works of the artist who welcomes us are scattered! It's fascinating, poetic, interesting, bucolic, relaxing, informative... I highly recommend the narrated tours dedicated to Arthur Rimbaud, better than a literature course. Special mention for the welcome and availability of the hosts. This place is a good place to share
