We have visited Yvoire on numerous occasions over the past five years but today was first time we have been able to access the gardens. Well worth the wait. Compact but it is what it claims to be, a sensory garden. The shop is well...More

A lovely garden with beautiful flowers that overlooks the chateau, the garden is divided into 6 sections, the average time spent is about 30mins. Don't miss the souvenirs shop on your way out!

The Jardin des Cinq Sens was an outside activity that took us about an hour and a half to go through--and that was very thoroughly, since my partner loves plants. At this time of year (mid-September) we found that a decent number of the flowering...More

The garden is nice but not excellent, at least in summer. On other side of lake, in Nyon, you can find nicer and free of charge. It is better to skip this garden and just enjoy Yvoire old town.

Le Jardin is a unique experience and well worth the admission fee even if you are not a gardener at heart. In August, some of the plants seemed a little wilted from the heat, but this did not detract from the experience. Informative signs let...More

I cannot recommend this garden highly enough! For all - adults, children, even teenagers. We visited with my teenage son and he was particularly taken by the 'taste' and 'smell' sections of the garden. Never thought I'd find a plant whose leaves smell of Coca...More

The entrance fee of 12 EUR is not worth a visit at this time of the year. Wonder when it is worth at all. The entire garden is rather small and it could be nice and peaceful without the whole crowd.
