Gardens of ' Domaine du Rayol': A must to visit: Jardins du Domaine du Rayol !
These gardens form a sort of natural outdoor exhibition. The 'Conservatoire du Littoral' (Botanical Conservatory), which is now the owner, has put the landscape gardener Gilles Clément in charge of restoring and re-designing the site: 12 acres of flora from Mediterranean climates from all over the world. Mediterranean carob trees, Australian acasias, South African strelitzias, Mexican agaves, Asian bamboo, New Zealand linseed and Chilean palm trees all in a truly magnificent setting. During summer you have the unique opportunity of diving in the adjacent underwater garden!Another must to visit: the islands 'Iles d'Or'. Especially national parc 'Port-Cros' (no cars allowed...),or Porquerolles. Just take the boat in Le Lavandou and experience the beauty of these islands and their underwater flora and fauna.
