Europe

Château de Villandry

The Château de Villandry, one of the castles that I was most excited about visiting prior to my trip. I had heard wonderful things about the gardens and was impatient to see them. A friend had told me that they are among the most beautiful gardens in Europe and as her parents are both landscape architects, hers is a recommendation I can trust. Needless to say she was right. Whilst the castle is undoubtedly beautiful, the real attraction is the gardens. Often referred to as a tapestry of gardens and it’s not difficult to see why. The intricacy of the landscape design is astonishing and best seen from the elevated platform which provides aerial views over the gardens.
