What a lovely exotic garden...the light kept on changing so the garden appears differently with and without the sun. Very well kept as well. There is an itinerary and it is so easy to follow in order not to miss anything. At the end near...More

We visited the Exotic Garden in Roscoff in September, so probably not the best time of year, but it was a real treat, even though it was raining. The microclimate allows tropical plants to thrive, and the garden is laid out with lots of winding...More

We called in on way to boat. Great selection of exotic plants. Good description and history of where they came from. Some for sale at the exit. Good viewing spot of the harbor and inlet.

Despite being very close to Roscoff Port, this is a lovely little garden to explore. Many interesting specimens. Considering this garden has not been there many years and it is run entirely be volunteers, we were pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed our visit.

Beautiful garden with interesting information about the plant hunters who brought the plants to France. Shame there was no cafe.

These gardens are an absolute delight and pleasure to wonder around. They are packed full of interest, colour and texture with stone holders forming a dramatic back drop. Well worth the 6e entrance.
