In Montmartre, there is a little garden that only few people know about. The Jardin sauvage St Vincent is hidden in the 18th arrondissement and is open only for a few visits each month.
Left to its own devices for decades, le Jardin Sauvage St Vincent has been re-discovered by the city gardeners only a few years ago. They then decided to give back a second life to this little Parisian garden while keeping its wild and untamed nature alive. 🙂
2000 square meters of wild trees, plants and flowers into the beating heart of Paris. This garden is kept un-kept for an ecological purpose: to let its biodiversity alive! 🙂 There is a little pond, full of green lentils floating above its waters. And majestic trees giving shade to the wild plants, flowers and animals.
Un-ruled and free, this little garden is ideal for a romantic walk in Montmartre. And it is ideal even for a time of meditation in the quiet of Mother Nature. 🙂 As any well kept secrets, this little garden is open only for guided tours a few days each month, from April to October only.
You can go and visit the Jardin Sauvage St Vincent on the first Sunday of each month : from 10.30 am to 12.30 or on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
Plus, the guided tours are free! 🙂
