  • Very nice garden offered by Ms. Cognac-Jaÿ (founder of the Smaritaine) born at Samoëns. Many rare species. Very well maintained garden. The climb is hard but it's worth it.

  • This is a beautiful garden on the hillside with lots of little places to stop and sit peacefully taking in the gorgeous views of the surrounding town and mountains.  more »
  • A walk bucolic and impressive sight and the variety of the species... of the fountains, the zig and the zags, I love... problem: often closed in the winter when there are more people in the resort

  • 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 well maintained Park, a pleasure to be pacing the aisles under the Sun!

  • 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.
