Between the two large alpine lakes of Annecy and Aix-les-Bains, come and discover les Jardins Secrets, a surprising garden for all.
A mosaic of gardens, lounges, patios, galleries and arbours turn the place into a unique and bucolic site where the creativity of a passionate family is revealed.

A must-see garden, live the experience…

A family story

This garden is a life’s work. In 1980, Nicole and Alain Moumen bought an old farm in the middle of the countryside. The couple, helped by their 3 daugthers, restored the old farm and started to create a first garden, very simple to start with, for the family’s own use.
Driven by their creativity, they worked every day, in an empirical and spontaneous way, without any plan in mind but with passion.
They never intended to open their gardens to the public, but, hidden behind their high wall, the gardens became intriguing and appealing not only to the family but to others too.
So Alain and Nicole decided to open their gardens to visitors in 1994.

A surprising world

Today, visitors can discover a unique place made of several small different gardens.
A mosaic of patios, galleries, lounges… which are composed of natural materials, flowers and water.
The creativity of this family is revealed through this puzzle of gardens with different influences and inspirations: Tusisian, Indian, Swiss, Autrichian…
They use a large variety of materials like copper, clay and wood sculptures, mosaics, pebbles, tiles… A wonderful handmade work!

Flora and fauna

For Nicole, the gardner, “gardnening is adapting to nature”.
So she chooses flowers an plants whitch adapt to the climate and the environment in which they grow.
Depending on the gardens and the seasons, flowers are discreet or luxuriant and become an accessory for the architecture.
Thanks to eco-responsive management, the Jardins Secrets
support a rich variety of insects and small animals, butterflies, bees, eartworms, which contribute to the overall health of the garden.

A magical place! I was completely mesmerised by the intricate details and the beautiful arrangements of sculptures and flowers. An absolute must visit!
Brilliant, quirky, interesting. Plus great lunch! Not far from Annecy, well worth the trip.

I will have to go back there next year. Don't miss the homemade mint tea and small cakes !
