  • Paths sometimes cliffs to access the marine panorama. A little too school garden lacking even explanations but above all charm, there is not much that invite you to linger.

  • very nice garden, by the number of varieties of Mediterranean plants, but the small problem that I hold, is that it lacks structure, there is a bit in all the senses, and feels a little lack of maintenance.

  • Beautiful plants and flowers. You can spend up to two hours looking around the gardens. Walking up the steps to the top of the rocks is well worth it because you get amazing views over Roscoff. It costs 18 euros for a family of four to get in.
  • A great place that my wife and I and our 12 year old all enjoyed. Great plants and views over the channel.
  • Stopped here with a bit of time to kill before getting ferry. Expensive to enter with 2A and 4K's. Not buggy friendly either. Take path to the side and you will find a quiet picnic place and a little stoney beach for the kids to explore.
  • Well maintained, nice location. The cactus house was excellent
  • Surprising experience. Lots of work and thought has gone into this lovely garden with rare subtropical plants. The viewpoint is worth a visit.
