Gardens of the Loire

June 12 – 19, 2014

Built in the 15th century, this fortress situated in the heart of the Loire Valley has been transformed through the centuries into a lavish estate. Since 1992 this festival of gardens has featured a unique panorama of landscape design from all over the world. In twenty seasons, almost 500 gardens have been designed, gaining international recognition for their innovative ideas and approaches. The work is often used as prototypes for gardens of the future. Chaumont-sur-Loire is renowned as a nursery for gardening ideas and talent. To this day, the festival’s international reputation continues to attract a new generation of landscape gardeners, architects and designers.
