|the view at the garden door|
The gardens in front of this famous Loire château have been reconstructed. They were opened to the public only on 20 March 2017. They counter-balance the overbearing scale of the old building as can be seen in these pictures, and help us imagine the leisure of the occupants in their day. The gardens are truely VAST in scale. So are the numbers of trees and plants.
Worth a visit.
Imagine how impressive were the similar gardens of the now-absent château de Richelieu
