France, Loire Valley - Château de Villandry V (Gardens)

When Joachim Carvallo visited Villandry in 1906, he found: 
"The grounds [are] landscaped in the English style, all undulations and hillocks (…), 
planted with a good many recently imported exotic species – cedars, pines, thujas, magnolias – 
set in clumps on the slopes of artificial mounds. 
The chateau itself [is lost] in a forest of trees and greenery."

Vegetables and flowers, scents and savours, calmness and energy, tranquillity and effervescence… 
the Château de Villandry unveils its remarkable gardens and smells.
