Tranquil little garden with lots of art displayed to enjoy. We visited in a group of 4 and had a guide we engaged for the day so we had the advantage of being shown around. Otherwise, walking by yourself would have been a good adventure too. Entrance via QR code on the app was easy and no hassle. Little shop in the garden was very quaint and nice. But the art items being sold seemed a bit pricey for our taste. Overall a good experience and worthy to take the time to visit if in the area.

having the insights and perspective from someone who's already seen the entire area is such a help and makes for a more rewarding trip. awesome resource to have!

Loved it! We had never heard of these gardens or the town of Etretat (Ville Fleurie). So charming and beautiful—well worth the trip!

Fabulous to see, very clever. You’re only there for around 30 -45 mins though, it’s still a highlight of my visit to Normandy.

This place is magical, definitely worth visiting. The view up there is amazing!
