The Garden Guide

Jardins Secrets

Alain and Nicole Moumen bought an old farm in 1980 and began developing the garden, which opened to the public in 1994. There are canals, fountains and pergolas.

Head Gardener's Comment

A must-visit destination in Haute-Savoie, between Annecy and Aix-les-Bains, les Jardins Secrets offer visitors an exotic walk on a plot of 7000m2, to discover a surprising mosaic of gardens, patios, galleries, lounges...which put together natural materials, flowers and water.

It took more than thirty years of imagination, audacity and work to Alain and Nicole to build an idyllic world with the help of their three daughters - Leïla, Myriam and Sonia.
The creativity of a passionate family is revealed through this puzzle of gardens with different influences and inspirations.
