  • This former agricultural property planted with olive and citrus trees has become a beautiful tropical garden where the tree king of Menton stands alongside banana trees and mimosas.

  • Located on the hillside of the Annonciade, the cradle of Menton, at mid-height, an altitude of 120 m. It faces the rising sun S / E, an exposure very favorable to the development of citrus and acclimatization of tropical and subtropical plants.

    Located on the hillside of the Annonciade, the cradle of Menton, at mid-height, an altitude of 120 m. It faces the rising sun S / E, an exposure very favorable to the development of citrus and acclimatization of tropical and subtropical plants.
    The origin of the garden dates back to the 16th century. At that time, the development of earthen terraces, then low stone walls crossed by paths and stairs, began. This ensemble was then called "countryside" by its owner-citizens.
    At that time, 200 olive trees were planted on the edge of the terraces on an area of about 25,000 m².
    Around 1820, a small rural house of about 70 m² was built in the Mentonnaise tradition. It is shaded by a terrace covered with beautiful wisteria and jasmine pergolas.
    At the end of the last world war, divided up by several successions, this property was partly abandoned.
    In 1957, the planting of a hundred new lemon trees began in the upper part of the property. To date, there are about 450 feet, all of the variety "lemon of Menton".
