Gardens of the French Riviera 

Explore stunning gardens under the Mediterranean sun

The French Riviera is traditionally known for the rich and famous but the real stars here are the gardens and the wealth lies in the sheer beauty of the region. Take a stroll through the lush tropical gardens of the Val Remeh or the cactus gardens at Eze overlooking the striking coastline. Feel the warm Mediterranean sun on your face as you meander through the local Nice countryside, explore the odd Roman villa and relax with a glass or two of wine as the sun sets.

Nice and the Côte d’Azur cram a collection of garden gems into a compact area. Nowhere else has such lovely gardens in quite such stunning locations – wonderful garden creations within and stunning views over sea, mountains and coastal towns without. Add to this the romance of hill towns like Eze, Vence and St Paul de Vence, the corniche roads, a sprinkling of Roman remains, villas of the rich and famous, and you have the ingredients for a week of sun, culture and natural beauty.

Based in the centre of Nice we can enjoy the narrow winding streets of Nice’s Old Town, the Promenade des Anglais and the beautiful azure sea. This is a wonderful place from which to explore the magnificent gardens and is where artists such as Chagall, Picasso, Matisse and Cocteau chose to live and work, you can certainly see why.

During our week in the Côte d’Azur our garden visits will be combined with local walks, allowing us to view the best of what the French Riviera has to offer. Garden lovers will enjoy Eze’s ‘Jardin Exotique’ and find Menton irresistible. “Gardens of the French Riviera” is a marvellous gift for any lover of public and private gardens planning to visit the South of France, so why not come and walk it with us?
