  • Close to the Italian border, the Villa Maria Serena was built in 1886 on the plans of Charles Garnier, architect of the Paris Opera, for the Foucher de Careil family, related to Ferdinand de Lesseps.

It offers a large collection of palm trees, cycas and tropical plants, a veritable open-air greenhouse.
