Long Description:

In the old town, a little rest in the garden Valentine Hugo, painter and illustrator 1881- 1968. This garden, not very big, is quiet and discreet, come to discover it. Attention, open from 8 am to 6 pm from Monday to Saturday. Closed on Sunday and on public holidays.

The Valentine-Hugo garden was closed to the public for several weeks because of a makeover. It is a long time since this beautiful space of serenity, close to the Place de l'Hotel de Ville, had not known such a site.

The aisles have been cleaned and redesigned and we move from one space to another with great ease.

You will find benches to rest, a statue-fountain Auguste Angellier, and a set of five fountains representing the five senses.

Dans la vieille ville, un petit repos dans le jardin Valentine Hugo, peintre et illustratrice 1881- 1968. Ce jardin, pas très grand, est tranquille et discret, venez le découvrir. Attention, ouvert de 8h à 18h du lundi au samedi. Fermé le dimanche et jours fériés.

Le jardin Valentine-Hugo était fermé au public depuis plusieurs semaines pour cause de cure de jouvence. Il y a bien longtemps que ce bel espace empreint de sérénité, à deux pas de la place de l’hôtel de ville, n’avait pas connu un tel chantier.

Les allées ont été nettoyées et redessinées et on passe d’un espace à l’autre avec beaucoup d’aisance.

Vous y trouverez des bancs pour se reposer, une statue-fontaine d'Auguste Angellier, et un ensemble de cinq fontaines représentant les cinq sens.
