Overview

AN OUTSTANDING PLACE ! Right in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, siding the coastline hiking-trail and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, sits the town’s Botanical Garden. The visit is a genuine invitation to travel across the coastal landscape of the Basque country. Original gatherings of plants enhance the whole picture : useful plants, a botanical maze, plants originating on the Five Continents … Quite a wide range offered to discovery ! The path to an entertaining as well as educational visit – both for grown-ups and kids – will take you through the four seasons of the year. In addition and providing a deeper insight to the Botanical Garden, is a guide-leaflet (also available in English), plus three thematic guide-leaflets such as : - « As fresh as a Rose » : dealing with cosmetic plants ; - « A tender heart beating under the hard cork » : dedicated to the different uses of local trees and brushes ; - « Bad Seeds ! » : on not-so-bad bad weeds … Various activities are taking place all the year round : guided visits, workshops, exhibitions, nature outings, plant-swapping … A refreshment room will provide organic fruit juices and cookies. In every aspect the Botanical Garden is being managed through natural and environment friendly techniques.

If your idea of a splendid botanical garden is lots of architectural planting and bags of colour with manicured lawns, then this one may be a touch disappointing. If rare alpine plants and herbs are more of your thing, then this could be interesting. Good...More

It is a fantastic way to do some walking, small the plantes and enjoy different panoramas among the coast. You pass beautiful houses, gardens and feel the ocean all the time.

This is a well planned and exceptionally lovely place to walk and enjoy the variety of fauna and native bird life. Its a quiet interlude away from the bustle of the port. There are super eateries nearby and the cliff top views are dramatic in...More
