Why Southern France is so magnetic? This must be its unique combination of simple earthiness and pure sophistication of traditional gardens of Provece.
Many of the estates are build on the remaining estates, vineyards and orchards created and cultivated by ancient Romans, who were the first gardeners in Provence - long time, huh?
I am digging lately the subject of gardens in Provence, because of my plan to spend there the closest vacation. While searching for information and studying the subject I am often smashed by the beautiful pictures of amazing places. I feel I need to share it with you.
Apart from old traditional Provence gardens there is a second school of garden style, not so much modelled on old farmhouse style. More airy and light.
By surprise I found a greek ancient villa restored to every detail. Have a look and say you don't like it...
