    Superb Botanical Garden in the heart of Samoens. A variety of plants and trees. The view at the top of the garden is beautiful. Not to be missed by lovers of Botany.

    A hidden gem. Great little trek through the gardens and a treat at the top overlooking the town.

    Place beautiful village, away from the world and dominating the streets. Quiet and shady, with multiple paths of rail to avoid the paved climb.

    Beautiful sometimes shady and sunny garden. The main road is tarred; practice with the stroller. There are also other paths between the cascades and plants for budding adventurers. Cool water waiting for the brave at the top with a breathtaking view of the Valley.
