THE VILLANDRY CHATEAU AND GARDENS
The Villandry gardens are recent in relation to the Renaissance-built Château. They were created by Joachim Carvallo, a Spanish scientist, who bought the domain in 1906. After restoring the Château to its original Renaissance style, he decided to create a vegetal background in harmony with the structure. His designs were inspired by medieval, French and Renaissance gardens. Unfinished in his lifetime, the work was finished by his descendants. 350 000 visitors each year discover the ornamental kitchen garden, the ornamental salon, the water garden, the medicinal garden, the labyrinth and the sun garden. For Villandry, you can embroider a small topiary with a typical form from the Villandry gardens or a cross stitch interpretion of the kitchen garden.
