Focus on the Festival des Jardins de la Côte d'Azur / French Riviera at Cannes

Along the Mediterranean coastline and in the countryside, the most beautiful parks and gardens are open to the public on the Côte d’Azur. Be transported by the beauty of these ephemeral landscape creations designed by national and international landscaping teams. Take part in the numerous activities and exclusive visits which punctuate the almost month-long Festival des Jardins 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.


Discover the 13 landscaped creations in 6 different locations: Antibes – Juan-les-Pins (Pinède Gould), Cannes (Villa Rothschild Garden), Grasse (Villa Fragonard Garden), Menton (Biovès Garden), Monaco (Terrasses du Casino) and Nice (Albert 1er Garden).
Each garden presented will showcase an authentic world over an area of 200 m² and take the challenges of sustainable development into consideration. Access to the gardens is subject to the health restrictions in force.
As to the 11 pop-up “non-competing” gardens, they can be discovered in the same towns, but this year, 3 towns are joining the “non-competing” festival: Cap-D’ail, Mandelieu-la Napoule and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

Discover one of the most dazzling facets of the Côte d’Azur with its botanical gardens, pleasure gardens, historic gardens and medieval gardens.
