THE CHATEAU OF VILLANDRY

THE CHATEAU OF VILLANDRY

The most beautiful garden in all of France

Going to France is always so special so you can imagine a girls excitement when she is told that she is being taken to visit a palace that was constructed in the 14th century, with the most beautiful garden in the whole of France. The Chateau of Villandry is a castle located in Villandry in the department of Indre-et-Loire in France. An incredibly beautiful part of France in an area known for its magnificent castles and villages.


It is truly the most spectacular garden I have ever set foot in. I imagined Alice in Wonderland and Willy Wonka's chocolate factory in one. I'm a plant lover more than animals or sweets and being a textile designer who uses natural dyes I was also curious to see what was available in the garden.


Every inch of the castle ground is perfectly manicured and not a single weed allowed to enter. The attention to detail is very much what is expected in such a place and what the French are renowned for. Each year the theme changes and so do the plant and flowers in the garden. There is even a tennis court even more beautiful than the grounds of Wimbledon!
