Now returning to its former glory after years of decline, this garden has an incomparable location on the Riviera coast. Made from the 1860s by the Hanbury brothers, its early planting is now hugely mature. The paths zigzag down to the sea through jungles of vegetation divided into geographical and botanical groupings, with magnificent specimens at every turn.

A good choice for a full-day visit, with a small but friendly café at the bottom of the garden.
