Hidden on the Normandy peninsula, facing the Channel Islands is the Secret Garden of Vauville. With over 1,000 species of plants from the southern hemisphere the garden covers 10 acres and will take you on a journey to another World.
Secluded glens of exotic plants and palm groves of Trachycarpus will surprise and delight you, pools and streams show case Royal Ferns from Tasmania and Gunneras from Brazil. The aromas of Eucalyptus will transport you to another place.
This oasis of tranquillity owes its existence to the warm
currents of the Gulf Stream and the dedication of the botanist and perfumer Eric Pellerin who laid out the garden in 1948.
His son Guillaume Pellerin and his wife Cléophée de Turckheim designed it as you can see it today. Today, Eric Pellerin and Guillaume de Lestrange continue to care and develop this hidden gem and warmly welcome you during the season.
The Garden offers you guided tours to show off secret glades and rare specimens or the option for you wander at will and enjoy the sights, aromas and bird song at your own speed.
A shop and café set in the grounds will allow you take
refreshments and reflect on the magic of nature.
