Fodor's Review

Set 1,310 feet above sea level, the Jardin Exotique is one of the Riviera's most visited sites. Full of rare succulents and Jean-Philippe Richard sculptures, the botanical garden is also blessed with superlative views: from this crest-top locale you can pan all the way from Italy to St-Tropez (on a clear day, you can even see Corsica). In 2014, it expanded on the northern slope, where you can now stroll amid typical Mediterranean vegetation. Just a few feet from the entrance, take a time-out lunch at the Nid d'Aigle, an inexpensive eatery featuring focaccias and salads, quaintly set on stone levels rising up around a tall tree.
