  • More of an arboretum than a garden, although there are some flowering plants and a large pond, the Jardin de Plantes proved a welcome shady retreat from the hot August sunshine. My husband and I...

  • We go here regularly, and it is constantly changing for the better. The lake area if very nice, and the peacocks add an extra dimension.

  • We spent half an hour driving around St. Cyprien to find these gardens. There are no signs from the Argeles side but eventually we found one at the end of the road approaching from the St.Cyprien...

  • As an update in 2022, March is a wonderful time in the botanic gardens. Camellias and magnolias in full bloom, along with daffodils, freesia, muscari and others. The scent of the many freesias is heavenly and the proliferation of dozens of different types and colours of enormous camellias is amazing to see. Well laid out botanic garden that offers some beautiful camellias and magnolias as well as lots of other types of trees and plants. It was quite a damp walk around today as there has been heavy rain recently and the grassy areas were very wet. Great care needs to be taken when walking on the wooden boarded path around the garden when it is wet because it is extremely slippery to walk on. A real delight today was one one of the peacocks was wandering loose in the gardens and was displaying his beautiful tail plumage multiple times as we watched. Such beautiful birds to watch and lovely to see him in action. I took a couple of videos and photos of him and some of the plants in the gardens so you can enjoy them too. **************************************** There is a wooden track that gives a route that you can follow around the gardens but of course you don't have to stay on the track. Handy if you had a baby in a buggy or a wheelchair perhaps as it would be easier to push along on the track rather than on the grass. There are a couple of peacocks in an enclosure that you can admire however the enclosure looked a bit small for 2 or 3 peacocks to be honest. There is a Japanese inspired area with lots of bamboo to walk through and a bridge to walk over a small lake which is stocked with probably as many as 100 beautiful koi carp. I love koi because they are such beautiful mixes of colours and some can be very tame. Amazing and very entertaining to watch them all swirling in the water on a lovely sunny day.
  • Very nice botanic garden with sculpture excibition. Really worth a visit
  • Lovely garden for a picnic. Quiet relaxing atmosphere, well worth a visit.
  • A wonderful relaxing park , a peaceful place to visit if everywhere else in the region is hectic , no entrance fee but donations are accepted ,
