  • Beautiful garden with area to park near the entrance. Not very big but a lot of elevation. And don't forget not a repellent to mosquitoes: there are everywhere (on average 5 bites per person!)

  • Nice Botanical Garden located at 2 steps from the bustle of the beach. Circuit signposted with a fine collection of local and exotic plants. Allow the anti mosquitos.

  • Absolutely charming place. A small botanical garden with a good collection of plants of different climatic zones. Very nice! And while a walk will not be tedious for children and the elderly. Visitors a few which create a feeling of privacy.

  • Magical place with rare and exotic plants that you can't see anywhere else in France. Go with mosquito repellent products, because we were bitten 30 times each in an hour's visit!
