Protected to the north by the Alpes Maritimes, and facing the Mediterranean, Menton enjoys a warm, gentle microclimate which encouraged plant collectors in the early twentieth century to create gardens among terraces of olive and citrus trees. With species brought from many parts of the world, these gardens provide a fascinating insight into the influence of Thomas and Daniel Hanbury, the Waterfield family and Maybud Campbell, all part of a gardening fraternity who exchanged plants and ideas. Strong elements of Italian design have influenced Menton’s villas and gardens. Our itinerary includes some rarely opened and secluded gardens of exceptional beauty. A highlight is a cookery course arranged at the two star Michelin Restaurant Mirazur situated on the Italian border with superb views over the bay.
We stay at the very comfortable and welcoming Hotel Napoleon in Garavan bay, overlooking the old Italianate town of Menton.
Terraced gardens with steps.
Why not add a few additional days in Menton or in Nice.
