A beautiful way to chill in this lovely town. A wide range of shrubs and plants and beautiful displays make this a great place to visit or to stop en route to or from Cherbourg.

In a town which is particularly attractive for its flowers, this garden is quite outstanding. You are stepping into a botanic garden in the style dear to the nineteenth-century French and to the Victorians, with elaborately arranged flower-beds, fountains, a spacious central walk with plants spilling out of urns, and, further from the centre, a wooded area with many species...

Coutances is very proud of its garden, and with justification. I am not an expert, but enjoyed walking round it very much.

If you're visiting Coutances any time in spring/summer/autumn reserve 30 mins for a visit to this garden. Nice scale with typically lively French floral displays. This years theme is "the Arts" but previous years have dedicated designs to Music, the Tour de France etc etc. Great views from the lower terrace over typical Cotentan countryside

My family and I have visited these gardens frequently over the last 25 years as we often stay nearby. They are very conveniently situated near to the cathedral and main square of Coutances and have been sculpted out of the hillside on the west side of the square. There are beautiful views out over the valley to the west towards... More

Lovely setting, fantastic flora and fauna. Very peaceful with lots of secluded areas to sit and read, lots of seating in shade and sun and lovely scents drifting around too.

These gardens are quite small but just lovely. They are the municiple gardens of Coutances and are situated just a stone's throw from the cathedral and main square. Well worth a look. There is an interesting raised maze in the gardens and children just love running up to the top. There is usually some type of theme incorporated to the... More

Beautiful gardens in the centre of the town and this year there was a theme of children's stories within the gardens.
