  • Even though we may not have chosen the best time to go (there probably more flowers in the spring), it's a very nice ride, offering beautiful views. Special mention to the greenhouse for cactus. Price may be a little high, however.

  • Visit late September... a little bit off season. Interesting, well designed garden. Deserves to be reviewed...

  • A very nice walk with a great wealth of plants. We also enjoyed the many places of relaxation located here and there over the promenade (table depique picnic bench, chairs, water). The natural side of this garden much like us.

  • Visited while waiting for ferry. It's small and takes only a few hours to get around but I'd have went out of my way to visit it had I'd known how good it was going to be. Very informative and educational. Just wish a few more of the information had been in English. Superb.
  • Good spot for whiling away an hour or two in Roscoff. Intriguing aromas add to the visual treat of the profusion of plants from far afield. Good picnic spot just down towards the beach from the entrance.
  • An interesting interesting garden with a helpful map that you can take with you to ensure you get to see all that's on offer. Nice view of the sea from the rocks.
  • A great display of semi exotic and exotic plants and a great way to kill a few hours before leaving on the ferry, so long as it isn't raining.
  • Secret place - it needs better signage to find, but once you've found it you'll love the range of flora and fauna.
