As English garden designers based in the Loire Valley, these gardens have been a source of inspiration and pleasure to us for many years.
This site gives us the opportunity to share our love and enthusiasm for the region and its gardens. It will gradually expand as we discover more horticultural gems in the future.....
Of the many gardens in the region nearly 100 take part in the annual Rendez-vous aux Jardins, a national open gardens event in June, while 28 are designated Jardins Remarquable by the Ministry of Culture.
Come with us then on this virtual voyage of discovery into the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Loire Valley. Here you will find gardens of all sizes ad types, from ancient to contemporary, both grand and simple. Discover in the art of French gardens and the French way of life, a celebration of the natural environment and the cultural landscape of this most fortunate place.
