A French countryside inspired garden set in the Bahamas is just too much for many botanists to resist. Take a stroll through the gardens and you will find a peaceful spot filled with lush flora and a few flying friends that can't resist the sweet nectar of these gorgeous plants.

A rectangular design that is about 75 feet wide, the Versailles Gardens is a multi-terraced property featuring two mirrored halves. The rocks are hand laid, the grass is Bermuda, there is a rich purple Bougainvillea stand, and the hedges are perfectly boxed.


Located on Paradise Island, 3.9 miles northeast of Nassau, Versailles Garden invites residents and vacationers who are lodging on this part of the island or close by. Whether or not you are staying particularly close, you should feel free to stop by to check out the sights.

Versailles Gardens is located between the Ocean Club and Nassau Harbour.
