Let it be said, the "Jungle Karlostachys" garden is not quite a "jungle" for European tourists, which you would visit at your convenience, following a botanical markup along beautifully drawn paths. To start, it is quite possible to pass in front of this garden without noticing it, as he took the decision to stay wild. This is why the owner of the place does not hesitate to add topographic information - "between the farm of Beaumont and the archaeological site" -, to ensure that its visitors will arrive safely. Here we are. Boots are a must, a touch of adventurous temperament as the visit takes immersion in the wilderness. We left for 1h30 of discovery, in the wake of Charles Boulanger who himself ensures the visits, inexhaustible on his protected brought back from exotic lands. We are dealing here with a traveling botanist, who sows where others plant and who watches growing where others prune and maintain. Here, it is wasteland, the jungle in short, with the decision to let nature fend for itself. The result is a spectacle of rare authenticity, to catch a glimpse here in pictures.
