Gardens in Normandy

Gardens in Normandy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The rich and varied landscapes of Normandy, dotted with apple orchards and tall hedgerows, harbor some of the most beautiful gardens in France. Gardens in Normandy is a breathtaking tour of the region's finest horticultural treasures, from the fertile Seine Valley to the magnificent wind-swept cliffs overlooking the English Channel.

The forty gardens featured reveal an extraordinary diversity of styles and influences: flower gardens, where subtle colors harmonize with the region's characteristic half-timbered houses and dovecotes; collectors' gardens filled with rare and exotic plants; English gardens by such celebrated landscape designers as Russell Page and Gertrude Jekyll; the elaborate arabesques and topiaries of elegant châteaux parterres; and tempting gourmet kitchen gardens. Water plays an important role in this province, which is traversed by myriad small rivers and streams, and among the spectacular water gardens readers will be delighted to discover a fresh perspective on Claude Monet's beloved domain at Giverny.

Superb color photographs by Vincent Motte and Christian Sarramon, commissioned specially for this volume, reveal the beauty of these gardens in every season, while a comprehensive visitor's guide provides a list of regional plants, details on how to visit these gardens, and a selection of charming hotels and restaurants.

As a lavishly illustrated introduction to Normandy and its gardens, this book will become a cherished source of inspiration for garden lovers and a delightful companion for travelers.
