Overview
More
The Garden of Eden is the former park of the Cordeliers monastery and the Notre Dame convent. It is a magical, authentic and historic place, full of basin, ponds and trees of various species : an island of coolness and greenery in the heart of the city. The Garden has managed to keep the charm of former days. Covering a one hectare area, it is surrounded by old ramparts and of its tower rebirth, narrow footpaths and a stream having its source at the top of the hill. One can still find remains of old dwellings and small bridges. Steps will lead you to the panoramic viewpoint through shaded areas. A quiet and soothing atmosphere radiates from this preserved haven of peace. The Garden of Eden offers a wonderful view over the Rhone and the twin towns of Tournon and Tain l’Hermitage; on the river banks facing the garden, you will admire the famous vineyards, remarkable for their terrace cultivation.

Excellent garden and wonderful views. Mind scary cat 🐱 who attacked my dog. Very nice owner and cat just protective of his garden. Take a drink 🥃 sit and enjoy endless fountains.

Just minutes off the main street, you step back in time tracking the history of the area through this intriguing garden. Despite missing the spring and summer flowers, the garden is attractive in autumn-although requires rugging up as many of the paths are in the...More

This garden is a work of art. The owners must have spent every waking hour and all their effort transforming it. It is well worth a visit, we got so many ideals for our garden, and spent a couple of hours just strolling through, taking...More

Several trails were closed off, so I have to give 4 stars (would give 4.5 if I could). Very relaxing, very nice views, wish we had more time to just sit. Easy potential for 5 stars when the garden is completed!

The view itself is worth the price of admission, but the garden's terraced nature working up the hill is neat. A great first stop on our vacation.
