Domaine du Rayol, The Mediterranean Garden

Remarkable garden

Domaine du Rayol is a protected natural area of ​​20 ha, property of the Conservatoire du littoral, located at Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer, at the foot of the Massif des Maures and facing the islands of Hyères, in the Var, between Le Lavandou and Saint-Tropez. Landscaper Gilles Clément designed The Mediterranean Garden, an invitation to travel through the Mediterranean landscapes of the world (California, Chile, South Africa, Australia, Mediterranean Basin, Canaries) and landscapes with a more arid or subtropical climate (Mexico , Asia, New Zealand, subtropical America).

"To discover this garden is to feel some of the emotions experienced by a botanist explorer who surveys the planet!"

The Domaine du Rayol offers you: exhibitions, guided tours "discovery", thematic tours, activities for families, workshops-training, celebration of seasonal changes, festival of plants, marine trail and musical evenings (classical music and Mediterranean) in summer .

On site you will also find a place to eat at the "Café des Jardiniers", a specialized bookshop and an ecological nursery.
Tourisme durable

Owned by the Conservatoire du Littoral, this 20-hectare estate is located just opposite the islands of Hyères, in the Parc National de Port-Cros. Renowned landscape gardener Gilles Clément has created a mosaic of gardens evoking the flora of the world's Mediterranean regions.
Whether on a self-guided tour or a themed guided tour, a stroll through the garden is a botanical journey from one continent to the next. Younger visitors can take part in fun activities that introduce them to ecological gardening and raise their awareness of natural environments.
The garden reveals its beauty and interest in every season; in winter, it is particularly attractive with the blossoming of its 30 different species of mimosa.
