Great gardens to visit within the Loire Valley

 

The gardens of the Loire Valley, or more specifically the gardens of the major chateaux, are known throughout the world as special places to visit. Who would fail to be impressed by the beautiful layout of the gardens at  Chateau de Villandry or the annual Garden festival at Chaumont-sur-Loire.

 

There is such a great selection of gardens that you could spend your holiday just viewing them alone. Nearly all cater for children by providing play areas and even mazes though just having enchanted spaces to wander around in may even be enough to keep them amused. An unusual addition to the Centre Region's official great gardens is the 'Rose Village' of Chedigny - the first village to obtain such a distinction.
