Cacti, Succulents, etc.: Eze Exotic Garden, France


Every cloud has a silver lining. If I wouldn't have accidentally deleted my pictures after our European trip last year, I wouldn't have visited this garden again this May.
First time, we didn't expect anything special from this garden. We visited it before our dinner in a restaurant on the top of the rocky mountain in the ancient village of Eze (not far from Nice in Southern France). 
It happened that the garden and the views were a major treat.
It has cacti, agave, aloe and other plants from all over the world, and the sculptures 
of Jean-Philippe Richard add to its uniqueness and charm. 
Emotions fly high in this place, and a deep appreciation is in order not only for those who created it 
but also maintain this garden.
This is the first batch of pictures.

  1. Wow! That is a gorgeous garden and you have captured some incredible shots! The contrast between the blue water and the hillside and buildings is stunning. Absolutely beautiful shots.

  2. What can you say about a place like this?! For me number one is "location, location, location!" What an amazing collection as well. It must have taken some energy for you to have maneuvered this terrain?! The garden looks familiar and I'm wondering whether it may have been featured on one of Peter Seabrooke's destinations on the Victory Gardens television show many years ago...

    Thank you for taking me to this beautiful place...if only through your camera lens. I could almost feel the heat radiate from the rocks and feel the sea breeze cool me off. I love the sculpture among the cacti....and the view!!!!

  7. When I saw first photo I thought : "I know that, I have seen that view", and that was true we have been in Eze a couple of years ago. So beautiful the south of France and your photos are of an outstanding beauty! Looking forward to next post.
