Jardin de Balata

Jardin de Balata

All paradises are gardens and it is no coincidence that during the visit to the Garden of Balata, the magic of the place gives visitors amazing feelings. It was in 1982 that Jean-Philippe Thoze, horticulturist, landscaper and artist at heart, retraced the steps of his childhood in the Creole house of his grandparents. From there, will be born a passion for botany which will take him to the four corners of the world. The garden, organized around the family home with typical Creole architecture, is the result of a perfect alchemy between a return to basics and an atypical artist.
