Chateau de Villandry – a 16th century late Renaissance chateau in the Loire Valley, France…..famous for it’s magnificent gardens.

The Loire Valley, with a great number of chateaux, is listed with UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

This recreated Renaissance garden at Villandry is like a tapestry changing with the seasons.
The gardens are on three levels. At the top, from where this photo is taken, is a water garden fringed with ancient lime trees, then on the next level down, a flower garden level with the chateau and then below that is the world’s largest ornamental kitchen garden.

Eight full time gardeners maintain the gardens at Villandry. They raise and plant 60,000 vegetable and 45,000 bedding plants each year.
It truly is a delight to the senses.

I am an amateur photographer who loves this wonderful adventure with the camera and I would like to hopefully create a few memorable photos along the way.
