The Loire Valley region of central France is known throughout the world for its chateaux - the ancient homes of the kings and aristocracy of France. It is also an area of great natural beauty and it was in recognition of the regions balance between architectural heritage and natural environment that UNESCO has listed the Loire Valley as a World Heritage Site for its cultural landscape.
The parks and gardens of the region are equally well regarded, often enhancing the chateaux which have made central France famous. Our home in northern Indre is surrounded by many of the great gardens of France. Several dozen of the best are within 2 hours drive and some are just around the corner.
Colin Elliott, Principal of the Garden Design Academy and an experienced professional garden designer, will personally guide you around a selection of the Gardens of the Loire Valley during this exclusive tour.
Each tour will be different, allowing for our client's differing interests and the changing seasons, but some notable gardens are a must for the enthusiast.
