Maria Serena Garden

Park and garden, Garden, Botanical garden, Plant collection in Menton
  • The garden around the villa is an invitation to exoticism. Reputed to be the most temperate in France, it houses a large collection of palm trees, a Dracaena Drago and a collection of Cycadaceae. At the foot of the cliffs of the Italian border

  • 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.
