The conservatory orchard of almond trees, located in Apt near the mill of Salignan, is a unique garden. It is composed of a national collection of more than 40 different sorts of almond trees.
Among those different kinds of almond trees, you can find the Demi-Tendre of Apt, which is usually used to make nougat, the Verdale, the Princesse... The orchard counts nearly 150 trees.
We advice to visit the conservatory garden especially in spring, when the almond trees are covered with flowers and create a splendid landscape.
The visit of the orchard can be combined with the guided visit of the mill of Salignan, which takes place every Thursday of April, July and August at 10:30am. You have to contact the Maison du Parc (in Apt) in order to book the visit.
