  • Visiting the botanical garden is a unique experience on the island. The impeccable care for the flowering plants and trees and the comprehensive arrangement of the park is surprising. A very nice...

  • They have more rules of what not to do then there are plants. 13 rules for a single playground with one activity! Not very informative. All the plants only have a single sign with the French name.....  more

  • We had really great time! The entrance is 15€ and it's not time limited. The rope bridge is also included in the entrance fee and the view is amazing! We spent there 2,5 hours and I think it was quite enough. We came around 10am and had no problem to find parking lot. Next to the gardens is delicious restaurant La luciole, we had menu (punch, starter, main dish and desert) for 25€. Recommended :)
  • What an amazing botanical garden. Even though it's not that big, the entire road towards it and after it feels like it's part of the same place. Lush vegetation, lots of flowers and the view at the end is breathtaking.
