LA DOUCE FRANCE : PEROUGES 3

When travelling around Pérouges we came across a koi garden so we stopped and had a look, it was beautiful !!! It was so peaceful there, it was a sunny and warm day and the shade of the trees was welcome. The garden was covered in ponds, big ones and smaller ones and there was a large bamboo garden as well. We had a really nice afternoon there and I took loads of pictures of course.
