THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GARDENS ON THE CÔTE D’AZUR!
A true invitation to travel: be transported by the Côte d’Azur garden festival!
“Artists’ gardens” has been chosen as the theme of the 2021 edition of the Côte d’Azur Garden Festival.
Gardens have always been a source of inspiration for the greatest names in literature, sculpture, painting, cinema and photography. The relationship between an artist and their garden can takes many different forms. Certain artists, as much in love with their plants as with their work, are passionate gardeners. Combining gardening and art, they transpose plants into their work and imbue their gardens with their creative energy. Fascinated by nature, they sometimes become skilled landscape gardeners recreating the landscape in their own image.
A GARDEN FESTIVAL ON THE CÔTE D’AZUR IN TWO PARTS…
IN or OFF, it’s up to you!
For the “IN” part: a landscaping competition covering 200 m² for each contestant, 15 designs installed in the city centres of the five largest cities on the Côte d’Azur: Cannes, Menton, Grasse, Nice and Antibes Juan-les -pins.
