Picnics

The peace and spaciousness of our olive grove lends itself to being an ideal location for a lunchtime pause.

We have many groups coming to enjoy a visit and their lunch as part of a day-long programme of garden visits in the Grasse area. We offer a variety of choices, and are open to suggestions too.

Each individual picnic is presented in a basket, and the guest can choose where in the garden to enjoy it.
