Gorgeous Garden in Provence


I wanted to show you this gorgeous garden in Provence.


 

It is a lovely mixture of formal, like the clipped box hedges and informal, like the random arrangement of pots.


I love this terrace with it's pretty fountain and row of potted trees.



A casual dining area on the gravel.



A charming little pool house overlooks the lawns and the pool.



I have never seen cypresses pruned with such precision!



Wrought iron, statues, pretty pots - all the things that I love.


There is something so romantic about an arch with climbing roses.
 

An island of agapanthus!


I knew you would want a glimpse of the interior as well!


So pretty.


I adore the scrubbed pine table.

 


Till next time

  2. I agree...breathtaking. I was just thinking about the hot Provence sun when I scrolled down to that refreshing pool! And love the kitchen - the way it's staged is brilliant too - not the usual veggies but they get that perfect, natural "fresh from the garden" look...beautiful

  5. How funny to come across these pictures. This house belongs to great friend of mine. And I have spent a lot of time there. It is absolutely my favorite house in the world. It is effortlessly beautiful!

  6. What is the name of this garden, and is it open to the public. I am assuming not, since there is no name. We will be in Provence May 18-25, and would like to visit some gardens.
    Thank you

  7. As a garden enthusiast, I am always on the lookout for ways to create that special atmosphere one experiences in the gardens of Provence and Tuscany. Recently I found a wonderful resource in West Palm Beach, Florida: Authentic Provence (http://authenticprovence.com). Walk into this oasis of calm, and you will see what I think is the finest collection of European garden antiques available in the USA: statues, fountains, planters (note especially the classic Caisse de Versailles, and Anduze pottery), terra cotta shields, stone animals, copper pots, garden spouts, and on and on. They also have beautiful stone fireplaces, re-purposed tiles, and many other specialty items. The staff is very adept at finding that special item, and in arranging shipping to anywhere in the USA. Definitely worth a visit, AND there is a great coffee shop across the street!
