Out on cape Mortola – between Menton and Ventimiglia – the Hanbury garden will mesmerize you with its beautiful landscapes. This classified site protects the Italian coast on about 6 kilometers. The splendor of nineteenth century botanical gardens combines harmoniously with exotic species imported from the world over. 

In the middle of the nineteenth century, the Brit Thomas Hanbury and his brother Daniel – coming from a family of botanists – buy the estate. They were raised by devout Quakers who taught them a deep sense of respect and love for Mother Nature through botanical sciences. Thomas Hanbury acclimatized and collected plants from the whole world. He enlarged the villa and the estate became his main residence. Between the top of the garden and the sea, there is close to a 100 meters drop – which makes for a spectacular view.
