The Garden Landscape Guide

Jardin Exotique Val Rahmeh

The garden was established in the late nineteenth century by Lord Radcliffe, a former governor of Malta and was used to grow subtropical and tropical plants. It passed to Miss Cambell, a rich English lady, and then to France's Natural History National Museum. It retains the air of an Arts and Crafts private garden with a geometrical area near the house leading into gardenesque planting.

    The whole of Menton is a garden but Val Rahmeh is the jewel in the crown! This is a magical garden filled to bursting with exotic plants. Well worth taking a detour for and if you have the chance, combine this with the other great gardens in town.

    A bit disappoiting. The garden itself is very small. What we can see is more a collection of flowers than a garden. It is still pretty though, but in Menton I prefer Serres de la Madone or Palais Carnoles, and very closeby in Italy the Villa Hanbury is an awesome garden.
