Sainte-Claire park

Located on the heights of the medieval town, this garden communicates via a picturesque trail with the modernist Villa Noailles and the St Bernard garden. The castle St Claire belonged at a time to the American writer Edith Wharton who created an impressive ensemble of terrace gardens in which she planted rare subtropical species. Most of them are from South America, Africa and Australia and bloom all through the year like the cycads, birds of paradise, musa trees, coral trees, aloes, yuccas, lantana and a rich collection of salvia.
