On the french shore of Lake Geneva hides an emotional garden with a surprising plant diversity. An invitation to the awakening of the senses and the discovery of the green world.


‘Le Jardin des Cinq Sens’ (The Garden of Five Senses) is inspired by the romantic settings of medieval mazes. Several intimate gardens with evocative names are like an invitation to awake the senses: ‘Jardin du Goût’ (the Taste Garden), ‘Jardin de l’Odorat’ (the Scented Garden), ‘Cloître de plantes médicinales’ (the Cloister of Medicinal Plants), ‘Prairie Alpine’ (the Alpine Meadow), etc. Each area pays homage to the rich variety of green world and lets human and plants meet gain.
This garden is a patiently formed living piece of artwork where each visitor enter at his own pace. Scented roses with prolonged flowering, long-forgotten vegetables and kitchen garden oddities, fabled medicinal plants, foliage with amazing textures, a collection of scented plants, etc. No less than 1,300 varieties mark the passing seasons to give pleasure to all. This continuous succession of diversity on display is maintained by a team of committed gardeners happy to share their knowledge and skills.

The garden has been awarded the ‘Jardin Remarquable’ (outstanding garden) accreditation by the Ministry of Culture and Communication.
Explanatory map and quizz for children help to the visit.

Free discovery quiz available in many language for children. Family pass (2 adults and 2 children) 31 €. Season ticket 16 €.
