  • What a nice suprise! As passing by the village of Mane we decided to have a look at the Salagon gardens. It turned out that we spent the whole day there! If you are interested in botany (and ethnobota...  more »
  • Liked most:-hospitality very pro - walking barefoot on the lawn between the flower beds of plants and flowers! -the possibility to buy seeds, plants - the store of exciting books - the meeting with the head of the works and buildings, passionate! -gardens, Church, free visit, we're going at their own pace - benches and small corners to sit, eat, breathe - satisfaction questionnaire to fill out like least:-lack of realization: it lacks a space where we could learn, your ter, taste aromatic plants. The visitor would have learned to recognize and mix plants, create drinks or remedies. CONCRETELY, when you go home, you just want to be able to achieve what has been learned. Spaces are not lacking: a few tables and chairs in the open field, for a total visitor experience! -lack of historical context: the focus is on gardens, but missing a lot of information on the history of the place, its inhabitants over time.

  • Beautiful restoration of the small nice expos Priory but flat for the gardens under the Sun that is sorely lacking water so we don't realize not nice plants and flowers no scents beauty but the drought and heat do not do justice to the beauty of the place

  • Thematic gardens (pre-Columbus area, regional gardens,..) are interesting for any gardener. Exposition in monastery is benefit. Good books about gardening in shop.
  • 15th century monastery now turned museum. Bio gardens, fresh country air, local town of Mane 2 blocks away. 5 euros to enter. French walkthrough headsets as guided tour.
  • beautiful location, amazing gardens and interesting exibits!
  • An absolute must. There something for every age and taste
  • The Church is very beautiful, stained glass windows are sublime. The gardens are very informative and Nice. Good explanations. Best Garden: the garden of scents. Only downside: the temporary exhibitions are not exciting. The store is nice.
