No, this is not Indonesia. The Bambouseraie de Prafrance near Anduze in a valley of the Cevennes contains Europe's oldest and largest bamboo collection - among other exotic plants. Much information is provided in different languages about bamboo, it's use, the history of the garden and the other plants.

A replica of a Laotian village (partly visible in the panorama) shows how bamboo is used there. There is also a large Japanese garden designed by feng shui principles, some greenhouses with exotic plants and many other things to enjoy. And of course there is a shop where you can buy all kinds of bamboo related things including plants.

The Bambouseraie is a very nice destination for a family day-trip, especially since you can combine it with a ride on a historical steam train starting in Anduze.
