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...

  3. Beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Incredible gardens and spectacular views! I'm so glad that you went back so that you could share this with us!

  5. Hello Tatyana girl !
    I see you still use the cute puppy picture ... he is just so sweet to see.
    OMG ! ... what amazing vistas you have captured on your trip .. and vignettes of such interesting plants .. I love cacti and agave .. the statues are gorgeous ... I love them ... the settings are spectacular !
    It reminds me a little of the botanical gardens we visited while we were in Spain .. so pretty !
    A great armchair trip to take , thank you !
    Joy : )

    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.

  8. Thank you my friends! I am preparing the second batch!

  9. The plants and the garden itself is amazing, but add in that location and it's out of this world! Thank you so much for sharing your photos.

  10. Wow! What vision the garden designers have. The collection and display of the plants is stunning among the amazing landscape.


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
