As Autumn settles over the northern hemisphere, some of you might be thinking about dusting off their fireplaces and taking their fondue kit out of storage. We would encourage you to hold that thought a little longer, for this is the best time of the year to go out and enjoy the beautiful colours of nature. To spur your inspiration, we selected for you the 10 most beautiful gardens on Live2Leave.
Jardin Majorelle - Marrakesh, Morocco
Absolutely stunning gardens and Berber museum – used to be YSL’s home for many years! Highly recommend but you must go early to avoid crowds (9am)
Arboretum des Grandes Bruyeres - Ingrannes, France
Amazing garden, amazing magnolias
Botanic Gardens - Singapore
The botanic gardens are so manicured it hurts! It’s definitely worth heading to the orchid gardens – which includes the most amazing variety of orchids I’ve ever seen!
Bahá’í Gardens - Haifa, Israel
Beautiful gardens leading to the final resting place of the prophet-herald of the Baha’i faith. You will need to be completely covered from shoulders to knees to visit.
Villa Doria Pamphili - Rome, Italy
Most beautiful garden in Rome and loved by locals. ideal for a sunday walk. Unfortunately, the villa can’t be visited.
Rosendals Trädgård - Stockholm, Sweden
Gardens and wonderful café with fantastic cakes etc – at Djurgården, an island inside the town – think there is a tram service – perfect for lunch and a stroll.
Babylonstoren - Simondium, South Africa
Stuff of dreams.If you’re there for the day be sure to try and join the garden walk at 10AM. If you’re staying there then definitely get up early and explore as you have the run of the garden and vineyards before they open the gates to the public.
Monet Garden - Giverny, France
This place is a living painting. Not surprising this is the place Monet drew most of his inspiration. Giverny is a reasonably short drive away from Paris. Fantastic experience guaranteed!
Inhotim - Brumadinho, Brazil
The biggest open-air contemporary museum in the word! The botanique garden is absolutely beautiful, peaceful. And in the garden you ring houses. Each building is dedicating for a contemporary artist. You need 1,5 or 2 days to visit all…
Chichu Art Museum - Kagawa, Japan
Monet’s garden just outside of Chichu Art museum 🌱🖼🍃🎨
