The Aquitaine welcomes you to the gardens of the Chateau de Hautefort with its terraces on former moats, to the Villa Arnaga in Cambo-les-Bains where the stairs of water meet the rose garden and the orangery, and to the public gardens in Bordeaux. One cannot emphasize enough the beauty of the pyrenean landscapes in the Park of the Chateau de Laas.

In the Perigord you will encounter the garden of the manor of Eyrignac, a surprising replica of the great Italian gardens..

The garden of the Abbey of Fontfroide, near Narbonne, is crowned with established wisteria. Its gardens of olive and cypress trees resemble the garden of Saint Francis of Assissi. The Bambouserie de Prafance has a far eastern ambiance unique in Europe. The Jardin de la Fontaine in Nimes is a most original garden surrounding the ancient site.

In the south-east, you will be delighted... the gardens display a profusion of beauty. You must see them all: the garden of the Picasso museum Antibes, the Parc Phoenix in Nice, the garden of the Villa Ephrussi in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the Promenades of the Alyscamps in Arles. Especially worthy of a visit in Marseilles, are the Parc Borely and the formal Botanical garden.
