Paradise of roses (Chédigny)
In the Indre valley, between Loches and Chenonceaux, lies Chédigny, the only village in France to be classed as a Remarkable Garden. A sweet fragrance floats through its streets... This is a place like no other! There's no castle, and yet there's a queen: the Rose ! This delightful village seems to come straight out of a storybook with its brightly coloured houses, draped in lush vegetation.
René Boylesve gardens (Descartes)
The René Boylesve landscaped gardens in Descartes, display colourful, rare and exotic plants from around the world in a historical setting. It's a magical, fascinating place... Breathe in the scents and take in the stunning view across the river. The rose garden has been there for many years now, but il's always worth wandering through the sensory rose arch.
The old-world charm of the public gardens

A leafy haven at the keep
The Medieval-style gardens at the 'Donjon de Loches', the castle keep, present a wide variety of ancient aromatic and kitchen garden plants, flowers and fruits, just as they would have done in the Middle Ages. In this world of stones and walls, these gardens are a breath of fresh air !
