Few people have experienced the privilege of lounging around in an 18th-century olive grove or in the garden of William Robinson, creator of the English garden. Through this unique selection of Relais & Chaeaux's most beautiful gardens, we offer you the chance to discover the treasures that extend beyond the walls of our properties.
In France, from the Jura to the Landes, we have unearthed a myriad of surprising gardens. On a Mediterranean hillside, the courtyards of the Chateau de la Chèvre d'Or are dotted with flowers in its exotic garden. Not far from there, nestled within Le Mas Candille, an 18th-century olive grove now boasts over 200 varieties of Mediterranean plants. At the Château de Rochegude in the Drôme region, doe and deer roam freely in the grounds.
Further north in the Jura, guests can enjoy a drink in the shade of hundred-year-old trees in the Château de Germigney grounds In the farthest reaches of the Landes and Béarn, Les Prés d'Eugénie joyfully conveys the a love for the poetry of nature.
Among the network of trails criss-crossing the English countryside, the discoveries continue at Gravetye Manor, close to the famous Elizabethan manor where English gardens were born. And if you'd prefer a break in the Netherlands, the Château de St. Gerlach is surrounded by a charming estate where a rose garden and a vineyard live together in perfect harmony.
