  • The garden is really beautiful. There is a great wealth of plants. We spent an afternoon quiet and surrounded by these wonders. I recommend this tour if you are or whether you are not fans of plants. I will return and I will try to go one Thursday morning for the guided tour. Thank you to preserve this place.

  • This garden is a jewel, a corner of paradise on Earth where time seems suspended. It feels like a great serenity in which it is good to relax. Thanks to Miss Campbell (known as 'The Lady in the datura') for this exceptional leg. The plant collection is remarkable for its latitude. Plant species are all beautiful, luxuriant and rare one than the other, a dense teaching in Botany and the testimony of a nature that reminds us how it is fundamental to preserve. In this, the visit to this garden is highly educational for young children who are captivated by the beauty of the place. An unforgettable visit. Rahmeh meaning arabo-persan "peace of mind" couldn't better bear his name.
