MENTON’S JARDIN EXOTIQUE VAL RAMEH

  • 1 min read

MENTON’S JARDIN EXOTIQUE VAL RAMEH

Established in 1905 by Lord Radcliff and then in 1957 it became the English garden of Miss Campbell who decided to place the garden in the hands of the Natural History Museum in Paris in 1966.

The garden is close to the seafront of Menton and is absolutely beautiful.

Tropical plants and fruits abound and the garden is arranged with interesting pathways, and plants set in climatic zones; mediterranean, sub tropical, tropical fruits and bamboos.

The spectacular circular pond with giant water lilies is worth the trip in its own right.

The garden is larger than the Clos-du-Peyronnet - but could be visited on the same day as the gardens compliment each other and are in the same part of Menton.

This garden is certainly worth the trip.
