Gardens of the five senses
– Sensory Gardens
An experience of emotion, poetry, and dreams...
Let your five senses guide you through the mazes of this surprising garden.
Over 1300 varieties of plants and flowers will heighten your senses of sight, smell, touch and taste. The birds’ songs will delight your hearing…
The visitor rediscovers simple gestures sometimes forgotten: smelling the perfume of a flower, stroking the foliage, squeezing a leaf to extract its
essence … During the visit, touch again becomes an instinctive reflex…
A unique setting, inspired by the art and architecture of the Middle Ages.
Medieval town of Yvoire
A relaxing break against the backdrop of Mont Blanc, and in the famous medieval village. Give yourself a real moment of pleasure on the lake and discover the beauty of Lake Geneva’s landscapes. Between the Alps and the Jura, you will navigate past Europe’s highest summit, the famous Mont Blanc and along Yvoire with its distinctive outline. Once a modest fishing village in the beginning of the last Century, Yvoire is now ranked as one of the International Laureates of Floral Decorations, and is a member of the Association of the Most Beautiful Villages of France.
