Across from the hotel
The Jardin des Plantes

Holding the title of “Jardin Remarquable” and among the four major botanical gardens in France, this garden boasts 10,000 living species and 800 m² of greenhouses across 7 hectares.
This English-style park at the very centre of the city, both a scientific and pleasure garden, attracts around 2 million visitors a year, of which more than 50 % are tourists. There is also a bust of legendary author Jules Verne, reminding us that he was born in Nantes.
The Jardin des Plantes is open daily, and the greenhouses can be visited from 12:30 pm.

A green lung
At the heart of Nantes

The creation of the Jardin des Plantes began in 1865, but it was only in 1865 after years of effort by the botanists Hectot, Noisette and Ecorchard that the site was inaugurated in its current form. Characteristic of landscape gardens of the previous century, it boasts a smooth design with numerous waterfalls and bodies of water as well as abundant floral decor that upholds the tradition of mosaiculture.
