A lovely garden with beautiful flowers that overlooks the chateau, the garden is divided into 6 sections, the average time spent is about 30mins. Don't miss the souvenirs shop on your way out!

The Jardin des Cinq Sens was an outside activity that took us about an hour and a half to go through--and that was very thoroughly, since my partner loves plants. At this time of year (mid-September) we found that a decent number of the flowering...More

The garden is nice but not excellent, at least in summer. On other side of lake, in Nyon, you can find nicer and free of charge. It is better to skip this garden and just enjoy Yvoire old town.

Le Jardin is a unique experience and well worth the admission fee even if you are not a gardener at heart. In August, some of the plants seemed a little wilted from the heat, but this did not detract from the experience. Informative signs let...More

I cannot recommend this garden highly enough! For all - adults, children, even teenagers. We visited with my teenage son and he was particularly taken by the 'taste' and 'smell' sections of the garden. Never thought I'd find a plant whose leaves smell of Coca...More

The entrance fee of 12 EUR is not worth a visit at this time of the year. Wonder when it is worth at all. The entire garden is rather small and it could be nice and peaceful without the whole crowd.

We visited here despite not really being gardeners. We thoroughly enjoyed the gardens and the many plants, as well as the views of the castle and the lake. A very peaceful place to spend and hour or so. We particularly liked the perfumed area which...More

12 Euros for a little garden with a few flowers and plants which can be seen in 40 minutes in all? Sorry but this is a touristic scam! If entrance fee was 5 Euros ok. But 12 Euros for that is authorized theft! Just because...More

If you are in Yvoire and appreciate nice flowers, flavours and more the “Garden of the 5 senses” is a must for you. My wife, at the beginning, was not so interested in entering, but I simply bought us three tickets and off we went....More
