Under the shadow of Mont Ventoux, not far from the more populous Carpentras and Gordes, lies the tiny village of St Didier. When the kids are tired of being dragged around the markets or yet another brocante shop, take them off to St Didier and le Jarditrain. A garden crammed full of trains, scenery, bonsaied trees and an great way to spend an afternoon. Even for the not so kids!

All the trains run to scale as far as speed is concerned.



The pride of France – the TGV. It whizzes around.



Everything is authentic



If you’re not using GPS, you may struggle to find St Didier on some maps. Look for the more well-known medieval hilltop village of Venasque and there are signs for St Didier at the foot of the hill. le Jarditrein is open afternoons from 14h30-18h30 (season) and from Tuesday-Saturday. During August, every day. It is always open on Public Holidays.
