This stunning, lush Mediterranean garden, with plants from all Mediterranean climates the world round, is wonderful for a stroll or a themed nature walk. The dense flora cascade down the hillside from a villa to the sea, and while flowers are at their best in April and May, it’s always worth a visit. In summer, at the estate’s gem of a beach, you can snorkle around underwater flora and fauna with an experienced guide; bookings are essential.

Also reserve ahead for open-air musical concerts or in-depth workshops. The estate’s Café des Jardiniers serves light organic lunches and refreshing hibiscus-peach infusions.
