Description

Laid out in terraces, Villandry's gardens are the epitome of Renaissance architectural conventions. The unusual Renaissance kitchen garden features a colourful patchwork spread over a couple of acres. The ornamental garden overflows with allegories, while the herb garden is rich in scents. The water garden and its Louis XV mirror-like pool is set in a cloister. The sun garden, a former meadow, dominates the estate.
