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.
