Italian baroque, French elegance, English whimsy, or Japanese zen or Andalusian romance – whatever their style, the Relais & Châteaux gardens create magnificent settings for charming properties. There is a return to the original meaning of the word garden: a metaphor for paradise. Many properties have magnificent gardens that have particularly enhanced their chosen landscape. Together with Porto Rozès, endowed with all the perfumes of the Portuguese Douro valley, we dedicate the Garden Trophy to these creators of lovingly crafted oases of natural serenity

"Whatever their style, our gardens are a metaphor for paradise"

  • Ballyfin Demesne


    One step inside the sprawling grounds of this historic Regency mansion house, one of the most lavish in Ireland, and an air of tranquillity takes hold. Classical grandeur meets with a landscape of rolling hills, follies and ancient grottoes in the breathtaking property, set at the foot of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. Ballyfin opened in 2011 after a spectacular eight-year restoration and has already gained a following for its unique combination of modern luxury with romantic period detailing. The hotel has been designed as a home-away-from-home making the experience entirely intimate. Guests can enjoy estate-grown food prepared by the executive chef, take part in wine and whiskey tastings in the cellar, enjoy a treatment in the wellness-centre, swim or simply spend an afternoon in the library, finishing with a fireside cocktail in the house’s cosy Ballyfin Bar.
