The Japanese Garden's debut took place in 1986. Its structure is centred on three buildings: the capitainerie, which oversees the port's operations; the Maison de l'Erdre, whose square structure encloses a Zen garden used for numerous exhibitions with an aquatic environment theme; and the Erdre House.

Thing to do at Jardin Ile Le Versailles:

  • Discover the enclosed garden that spans a total area of 15,000 square meters and serves as a place for leisure and relaxation:

The rockeries and waterfalls' design has intertwined with the layout of three buildings with a Japanese-inspired aesthetic. Bambous, chauve cypres, rhododendrons, camellias, and Japanese cerisiers are just a few of the exotic plants that are heavily planted throughout the landscape that was recreated and structured by waterfalls, cascades, and water bodies.


  • You will feel as if you have been transported to Japan as you indulge your senses:

The island's heart is home to a tea garden that uses traditional Japanese architecture. It presents landscape tableaus to walkers that fluctuate with the seasons and gradually alter over time.


  • Take in the abundance of aquatic life:

At the traditional tea house known as the Maison de l'Erdre, visitors can learn about the inhabitants of the Erdre, including the fish and plants that live there, and view aquariums containing twenty-one different types of fish.
