Jardin des plantes, Coutances
(4.6/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
One of the oldest gardens in Normandy, Jardin des plantes was created during the Second Empire between 1852 and 1855, thanks to a bequest from the Quesnel de La Morinière family. The gardens offer you a beautiful blend of French symmetry, English-style groves, and Italianate terraces. A collection of rare trees, patterned floral beds, and a maze combine to make this the perfect place to stroll and get away from the bustle of travel. This site has also been listed as a historic monument since 1992. Put Jardin des plantes into our Coutances itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • At the heart of Coutances, this beautiful garden offers opportunities to stroll and relax. The place is well maintained, with pools and water jets. No doubt very appreciated by lovers of the festival "Jazz under the Apple tree" s...

  • This VERY beautiful garden would find its simplicity of origin. From my point of view, the services make it "too much" in terms of flowering... The flowers (which the harmony of the colours would be a review) eventually "hide the garden", and his first intention. Visit however for its plan and its gradinee structure. A TRUE moment of calm, under the particular hotel related, transformed into a museum. MAGNIFICENT CEDAR OF LEBANON!
