The natural beauty of the 49-acre Mediterranean gardens of Domaine du Rayol took our breath away.
After passing through a yellow brick building with titles relating to nature and botany, we made our way outside. The sun shone bright, illuminating 12 natural gardens with plants from botanical regions across the world.
A winding path led us past a stunning display of a variety of bright mimosas from the south of France, lush cork oak from northwest Africa and passion fruit flower from South America. We saw flora from around the world, all blooming against the backdrop of unbelievably blue Mediterranean waters.
