Mother Nature day
From 19 to 23 may 2021
An annual celebration
The Château de la Moutte property was bought in 1860 by Emile Ollivier. A lawyer, writer and politician, he was chief of government under Napoleon III in 1870 and a member of the Académie Française. With his father, Démosthène, and his second wife, Marie-Thérèse, Emile Ollivier worked to create the original and grandiose garden of the château's park. To this end, they selected plants and trees of many different origins (palms from the Middle East, eucalyptus from Australia, arbutus from the Mediterranean, etc.) which give this garden its originality. The planning of the park and the arrangement of the plants have been organised in such a way as to create remarkable spaces: a palm grove, an avenue of palms, vines, cypresses planted to shade part of the site.
The Château de la Moutte - Domaine Emile Ollivier is a property of the Conservatoire du Littoral managed by the City of Saint-Tropez.
