The Gardens of Villandry

France - Loire Valley
22 images

In the Loire Valley of France I found a garden that threw inspiration at me like a shower of rose petals. The formal gardens at Chateau de Villandry are magnificent examples of how the ruling class of France combined their artistic flare and desire for fresh produce in the kitchen. It's also a world of its own for visiting photographers.

Behind The Scenes

There are literally more than 50 chateaux in the Loire Valley so very few people have actually seen them all. I pity the poor guide book writers who do have to visit every single one and make suitable entries in their notes. The following field guide at Photography for Travellers covers just one chateau, and in fact not even the chateau itself it's your guide to photographing the gardens of Chateau de Villandry.
