The Vacherot orchid farm is above all a great family story. It goes without saying because since 1886 the Vacherots have been busy growing and breeding thousands of orchids of different varieties, to the delight of visitors. Set at the foot of Roquebrune’s famous rock, the Michel Vacherot orchid farm covers a large area of over 2500m². Inside, heated greenhouses are each equipped with an in-vitro laboratory allowing the rapid production of different species of orchids, and offering a great choice for visitors throughout the year.

On site, fans of exoticism will certainly not be disappointed: Propetalum Mathina, Phalaenopsis Prima Piano, Cymbidium Goeringii... The Michel Vacherot greenhouse is overflowing with many varieties of orchids originating from everywhere from India, to Korea and passing via Japan. Let yourself be carried away by the magic of this unique place, where each orchid is adorned with a different form and color: pink, red, white, yellow... Plenty of reasons to spend a very special moment in the heart of nature!
