The visit of the garden isn't worth in this season. Waist of time and money! It was recommended by the "office du tourisme". The visit was really disappointed. Every other garden n the town and the flowers along the streets in Menton are much better...More

This is a beautiful garden that you can see many areas of tall bamboo, or water ponds, or every type of plant imaginable. Pictures look like Monet's garden.

Lovely garden to walk around, overgrown but fits in with the charm of the place; would have been completely peaceful if the workmen were not in the garden, but overall glad we visited and would recommend it
