Villandry

Most of the châteaux in the Loire et Cher are beautiful in their own right. And the one that we visited last was nice enough in its own right but the garden was the scene stealer. Where was this you ask? It was Château Villandry. Words are not adequate to describe the care and precision in the initial design of these gardens many, many years ago and the continued commitment by the current team of gardeners is amazing. So I will let photos do most of the talking.

Even vegetables and fruit trees were made to look as beautiful as the flowers within the overall design.image

As we moved around the gardens we were impressed with the way higher levels provided the visitor with excellent views of lower level gardens.

Much as we love the amazing Australian shrubs and trees in our garden we could just marvel and appreciate this wonderfully well designed and maintained French garden. Well worth visiting!
