A nice garden

A little expensive and small for the money, but the garden is really beautiful and I will recommend a visit.

This is an amazing garden with interesting and creative art incorporated into the garden. We loved it. I would defiantly recommend a visit, even so far to say go here just for this, it is worth the trip. The small town Etretat is also a nice place to stay

Strange !

Strange atmosphere, strange mixture of plants, strange sculptures with strange explanations. Poor value for money.

Thank you for taking your time to leave us a review. Les Jardins d'Étretat is not a typical garden — its a Neo-futuristic garden and open-air museum where contemporary art coexists with garden art and topiary. The creator of Les Jardins d’Étretat, Alexandre Grivko, followed the study of André Le Nôtre who stands behind such notable heritage sights as Versailles and Chantilly. The main point of his philosophy, which is implemented in our gardens, is using limited species to create volume space with lush greenery. During the spring and summer time such flowers as orchids, rhododendrons and agapanthus enrich the colors of Les Jardins d'Étretat. Not to mention our rich collection of contemporary art created by artists from all over the world. The price of our ticket, which is lower than our market competitors’ have, includes the daily work of our gardeners who take care of the gorgeous topiaries that covers square of 1.5 Ha. In addition, our garden is complemented by aforementioned collection of works of art that requires maintenance and supervision. We are sorry that you were not completely satisfied with your visit.

During the week this is a tranquil garden. A sense of melancholy surrounds you, together with amazing scenery. Will go again and again, just to experience it during different seasons. Week-ends a bit crowded.

What great green gardens...
Aug. 2020 • Couples
Our first time in Étretat we were looking for things to do other than join the crowded beach.

It was quite an uphill climb to get there only to be told it was cash only... unless you booked online and paid by PayPal - thank you internet, we paid and went it - so glad we did.

These gardens are beautiful - tons of topiary and sculptures galore, all overlooking Étretat bay and the Monet cliffs in the distance.

Highly recommended.
