Jardins Secrets garden

On hearing of a hotel called ‘Secret Gardens', we were particularly drawn in by the name and keen to know more. It is a fantastic choice- we really felt as though we were stepping into a fairytale land of fauns, flora and magic fauna. Well, we can't promise talking cats, nor miniature deities, but the enchanted garden is secluded and delightfully tranquil, even better when you consider this is the centre of Nîmes. And as the owners themselves told us, "we wanted the garden to encourage you to dream". The building was an old coaching inn. Bougainvillea trees crawl up the red façade of the building, and olive trees also help to give it shade, lending the house a Tuscan feel. It looks out on the garden, neatly delineated by the trees and plants. It feels such a joy to go for a dip in the shielded swimming pool here. Imposing earthenware pots covered with flowers surround it. There is an orangery adorned with roses and an old well, where the horses used to be watered.

The converted cloister leads to several lounges, which include a Napoléon III bar. One of the rooms along this cloister has been converted into a spa. Guests are advised to discover the ‘Source of Secrets', a Roman bath with Ayurvedic and organic treatments (Ayurveda is a form of holistic therapy). The spa is available privately upon booking. There is also an classically-styled heated pool, hammam and massage room, thus completing the sense of mystique with plenty of relaxation.

A lot of care has gone into the fabrics of the bedrooms, featuring silk sheets, chandeliers and four-poster beds.

Great service, beautiful surroundings, probably the best breakfast in the world.

The gardens are peaceful and intimate and filled with birdsong. This felt like stayting at a rather elegant mini-chateau 5 minutes walk from the Arena.

Just fantastic.

We Say

In parts, rustic without being a pastiche, almost Moroccan in others, luxurious in the indoor spa area and there is an almost stately-home appearance to the part of the garden by the swimming pool with its earthenware pots. This is a peaceful retreat in the middle of the city.
