"Villa Maria Serena" Menton Things to Do Tip by Polly74

Menton Things to Do: 65 reviews and 95 photos


The villa belongs to Lesseps family and it was constructed in 1880 on Charles Granier plans, architect of Paris Opera. This house has a beautiful garden.

As soon as you walk into the Maria Serena Villa, you are stunned with a gigantic "Oiseau de paradis " (Strelitzia angustifolia) which is 7 meters high! And also old Cycas revoluta. There, you can also admire the only outdoor Dragonnier des Canaries in Europe.
But the real " kings " of this realm are the palm trees.
